Major Creative New Zealand fellowship to boost artists working in craft and object art

New Zealand artists working in craft and object art have received a major boost with today's announcement by Creative New Zealand of the annual $65,000 Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship.

The largest fellowship in New Zealand available in the craft/object art field, the Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship is open to mid-career and senior New Zealand practitioners, curators and writers - ranging from jewellers, weavers and ceramicists through to furniture makers and designers. The recipient will be required to complete a project over a 12-month period.

Arts Board Chair Murray Shaw says the Fellowship is the result of recommendations made to Creative New Zealand after recent consultation with the craft/object art sector.

"The Arts Board is delighted to be able to provide this significant fellowship for artists working in craft and object art," Mr Shaw says. "It recognises that many of these artists aren't able to devote themselves to developing innovative or experimental aspects of their practice because they need to concentrate on the commercial side to earn a living.

"The fellowship is also open to curators and writers working in this field because there is potential for further development of these two vital components of the sector."

Applicants for the Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship should demonstrate that they have a strong national reputation and have been critically acclaimed for the work they have produced.

Applications close at 5pm, Friday 26 March 2004. For more information and guidelines please contact Elizabeth Caldwell, Arts Adviser, Creative New Zealand, PO Box 3806, Wellington (Tel: 04-498 0737 Email: or visit the resources section of the Creative New Zealand website (
