Wesfarmers Arts and the National Gallery of Australia: The Indigenous Leadership program - APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN

Tuesday, 27 May 2014

Key Dates:

Applications close:  31 July 2014

Wesfarmers Arts and the National Gallery of Australia designed this program with the goal to increase Indigenous leadership within the visual arts sector.

In 2009, the National Gallery of Australia and Wesfarmers Limited established the Wesfarmers Arts Indigenous Fellowship program to address the relatively small percentage of Indigenous professionals participating in the visual arts sector.

One component of the Fellowship program is the Indigenous Arts Leadership program, which provides an opportunity for up to 10 Indigenous Australians to travel to the National Gallery of Australia in Canberra and learn about the visual arts and museum sector over 10 days.

The aim of the Leadership program is to build and connect people, working in Country and at the National Gallery of Australia, and to promote and share knowledge and experiences to strengthen work practices and provide professional support.


Location: National Gallery of Australia, Canberra, ACT

Dates: 13 - 22 October 2014

Duration: 10 days

Value: Accredited course, return airfare, 1-year membership to the Gallery and Canberra-based transport, accommodation and meals.

Entry: Visual, audio, digital or written application addressing the application questions. Support material (eg portfolio of work, samples of writing, etc) may be included in your application but should not be larger than a standard (A4) sheet of paper.

Closing date for applications: Thursday 31 July 2014.
