Professional development and manufacturing design fellowship recipients announced

Friday, 21 October 2016

Arts Tasmania is pleased to announce the recipients of fellowships for opportunities in professional development and manufacturing design.

The Professional Development Fellowship program allows one emerging, one mid- career and one established artist or artsworker the opportunity to undertake a self-devised program of professional development to gain new skills and knowledge to extend their practice and develop their careers.

These fellowships of $5 000 each have been awarded to Rosemary Antonini, Kylie Johnson and Fiona Stewart.

  • Rosemary Antonini of Hobart is an emerging arts administrator. The fellowship will enable Rosemary to travel to the UK to attend the 2017 British Orchestras Conference and undertake activities with various orchestras including the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
  • Kylie Johnson of Hobart is a curator, artist and arts administrator. She will use her fellowship to work with three London based not-for-profit organisations researching new exhibition models and networking with artists and arts professionals.
  • Fiona Stewart of Hobart is an established actor, singer and voice teacher. The fellowship will allow Fiona to attend a specialist voice training workshop with two internationally respected teachers in Puducherry, India.

In 2016 a one-off Manufacturing Design Fellowship was also offered for a Tasmanian designer at any career stage to develop work within a design and manufacturing business.

This fellowship of $7 000 was awarded to two Tasmanian furniture designers, Scott van Tuil and Matthew Prince, allowing them to work with a small-scale Hobart based manufacturing company to access specialist machinery.
