Sidney Myer Creative Fellowship Nominations Open

April 15th, 2019

The Sidney Myer Creative Fellowships provide tax-free grants of $160,000 over two years to individual artists, arts managers and thought leaders in the humanities. Since 2011, the Sidney Myer Fund has awarded $11.68 million to 73 Fellows. Specific outcomes for the Fellowships are not required.

The two criteria used to select Fellows are: outstanding talent and exceptional courage. Specifically, this talent and courage relates to the artistic practice of the Fellows and not to cases of personal hardship.

Nominations are welcome for artists and arts managers across the entire spectrum of the visual, performing, interdisciplinary, new media and literary arts. Consideration is also given to arts managers and thought leaders in the humanities. Applicants to the program may not self-nominate and must include two referees who are not the nominator. More information is available at the link below.
