Applications are open for $100,000 Creative NZ Fellowship

Creative New Zealand is inviting applications for the prestigious Craft/Object Fellowship.

Established craft/object practitioners, curators and writers are invited to apply for the fellowship and receive up to $100,000 from Creative New Zealand, for work on a significant craft/object project over the next two years.

The Creative New Zealand Craft/Object Fellowship supports work for a project in traditional applied arts or contemporary practice, and includes customary and contemporary Māori and Pasifika craft/object projects and practices.

The successful recipient can use the funding to cover the time and resources they need to commit to a period of deep investigation, experimentation or research in their practice, and towards their project.

“We are looking for a project that supports the development of new skills and practice, and where new, high-quality New Zealand craft/object artwork will be created,” said Cath Cardiff, Creative New Zealand Senior Manager, Arts Development Services.

Craft/object genres supported include, but are not limited to, ceramics, furniture, glass, jewellery, object making, studio-based design, raranga, tāniko, tapa making, textiles, tivaevae, typography, and weaving.

Applications close on Friday, 29 March at 5pm.
Creative New Zealand has offered the fellowship since 2004, initially annually and now two-yearly.

Previous recipients:
- Katy Wallace (2017)
- Dr Areta Wilkinson (2015)
- Garry Nash (2013)
- Baye Riddell (2011)
- Moyra Elliott (2009)
- Rangi Kipa (2006)
- Peter Lange (2005)
- Malcolm Harrison (2004).
