The Guildhouse Fellowship has been announced


Announcing the Guildhouse Fellowship


A new fellowship for South Australian visual artists, craftspeople and designers.

The Guildhouse Fellowship, valued at over $50,000, offers a transformative opportunity for one South Australian mid-career visual artist, craftsperson or designer per year, to support research, international travel and the development of new work.

The Fellowship is generously supported by the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation and is presented in partnership with the Art Gallery of South Australia (AGSA).

Applications now open until the end of April 2019. 

Eligibility and Selection Criteria
The Fellowship is intended for artists who have moved beyond the early years of their practice; they have a distinct artistic expression, and seek an expansive opportunity to explore, research and create.  The Fellowship will be awarded to an artist who can demonstrate its instrumentality to their arts practice – and thus – their contribution to the ambition and artistic excellence of the visual arts sector in South Australia.
What is included

  • A $35,000 artist fee to support travel expenses, research and development, materials, etc.

  • Professional interpretative documentation, practice and material specific, developed with the artist.

  • A presentation outcome with AGSA following the Fellowship

Selection Criteria

  • Potential impact of the Fellowship on your practice

  • Viability of your proposal including relevance to your practice and timeline

  • The strength of your artistic career

  • Quality and/or diversity of your previous work

Shortlisted applicants may be approached for interview as part of the selection process.

We encourage you to share this excellent opportunity with your networks.
