Young Regional Artist Scholarships Foster Next Generation of Arts Professionals

They dance, act, tumble, photograph, sculpt, make music, act and now  have $10,000 from a major new NSW Government initiative, the Young Regional Artist Scholarship.

Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts, Troy Grant, recently announced the 16 young regional artists successful in being awarded a scholarship.

‘This innovative new program is supporting young regional artists aged between 18 and 25 to develop their careers and connect with arts organisations and training opportunities,’ Mr Grant said.

‘The inaugural funding program will showcase our youth locally, nationally and globally with exciting projects including circus training, experimental photography and debut music albums,’ he said.

The $10,000 scholarships, available for all art forms, fund activities including mentorships or internships with arts organisations, short-term courses and other training, national and international travel and creation of new work.

The first round of applications under the program attracted a competitive field covering dance, music, visual arts, theatre, literature and screen production.
