NAVA grant: Carstairs Residency Prize: closes 29 August
The Carstairs were an intriguing and eccentric blend of Writers, Poets, Painters, Pianists, and Illustrators who immigrated to Australia from Fife, Scotland, in the Nineteenth Century. Arthur and Yvonne Boyd believed that nature has the power to inspire and nurture creative exploration and play. When they gave their breathtaking land Bundanon, situated by the Shoalhaven River, they hoped that fellow artists would breathe its intrepid air, journey curiously down untrodden avenues and delve deeper into the imagination.The Carstairs Residency Prize offers assistance to a mid-career Australian visual and media arts, craft and design practitioner to undertake a one month residential residency with Bundanon Trust. The successful recipient will be living on the premises in Illaroo, NSW for the duration of the residency period of 4th July – 1st August 2016.
The grant will provides assistance for travel, living costs and artwork production costs to enable the artist to travel to Bundanon and maximise their creative output during the residency.
Funding Available: One applicant or group will be awarded $2,800 (excluding GST) and a residential residency space at Bundanon Trust.
Important Dates: Applications close midnight (EST) 29th August 2015. The residency must be carried out for the period of 4th July – 1st August 2016.
