Australia–New Zealand digital fellowship

The Australia Council for the Arts, in partnership with Creative New Zealand, is calling for applications from Australia and New Zealand-based creative practitioners for their Digital Fellowship Programme, January–June 2023. 

This fellowship programme brings practitioners together to co-develop their digital practice and set directions for the future of the arts in the region.

The six-month programme prioritises collaborative learning, as well as individual practice development, through a series of curated online gathering sessions, an in-person residential and mentoring. Investment is also offered to enable participants to realise new ideas and set the course of their future work. 

Five Australian participants will join five New Zealand participants, with identified positions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Pasifika applicants. The programme aims to strengthen the connections between Australia and New Zealand practitioners and organisations.

The programme includes:

  • In-person gathering – three day curated in person gathering including collaboration, learning, engagement, skills exchange and facilitated activities for all participants (2–4 February 2023)
  • Online gathering sessions – two curated one-day sessions of learning, skills exchange and facilitated activities for all participants (6 April 2023 and 25 May 2023)
  • Mentoring – participants are matched with a digital mentor 
  • Investment – funding of 10,000 AUD is provided for each participant to collaborate, develop or present their digital practice

All travel will be covered as part of the programme.


Artists working across any artform (community engaged practice, dance, digital arts, film and radio, literature, music, multi arts, theatre and visual arts) are eligible to apply.

The programme is designed for artists within their first five years of digital practice.
