The Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship, made possible by the Australian Antarctic Division in association with the Australian Network for Art & Technology, enables people from the creative community to experience Antarctica and the sub-Antarctic, and Australia’s activities in these locations, so that they may communicate this unique experience and understanding to others.
The Australian Antarctic Arts Fellowship aims to nurture the production of excellent and significant works of art and interpretation by professionals in the creative arts, humanities and social sciences.
Expressions of interest are assessed by a panel of independent experts in the relevant fields. From these, a shortlist of applicants are invited to submit a full application which is assessed by a second panel of independent experts. Recommendations are then made to the Minister for the Department.
The successful Arts Fellow will travel south on Australia’s icebreaker, Aurora Australis, on its final resupply voyage. Applications that pay tribute to the ship’s 30 years of service as the backbone of the Australian Antarctic Program and main lifeline to Australia's Antarctic and sub-Antarctic research stations are encouraged.
Expressions of interest for the 2019-20 Arts Fellowship are now open.

Closing date: 3 April 2019.
