Craft/Object Art Fellowship Call For Applications

Creative New Zealand Media release

Date: 15 November 2004

Creative New Zealand calls for applications to its 2005 Craft/Object Art Fellowship


Creative New Zealand is calling for applications to the 2005 Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship, worth $65,000. Established last year, this annual fellowship is the largest craft/object art fellowship or award available in New Zealand.

The 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 closing date is 25 March 2005 and the recipient will be required to complete a project over a 12-month period.

The Fellowship was established in response to recommendations in a strategy for the craft/object art sector, developed by Creative New Zealand in close consultation with the sector.

Applicants should demonstrate that they have a strong national reputation and have been critically acclaimed for the work they have produced. Creative New Zealand will be inviting external peer assessors to assist with the decision-making process.

This year's recipient was Waiheke Island artist Malcolm Harrison, who designed and created a major multi-media artwork in the Galleria of the refurbished Parliament Buildings. When he received the fellowship, Harrison said: "I feel total freedom to focus solely on my new project for a whole year. It's also wonderful to have my peers say, 'You've done a good job and just keep going'."

The fellowship is supporting Harrison to continue his work on a series entitled Euro Retro.

Applications to the 2005 Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Art Fellowship close at 5pm on Friday 25 March 2005. For more information and guidelines please contact Elizabeth Caldwell, Creative New Zealand (Tel: 04-498 0737 Email: elizabethc@creativenz.govt.nz). Guidelines are also available on the resources page of Creative New Zealand's website ( www.creativenz.govt.nz ).
