The Veolia Mulwaree Trust is encouraging local artists to apply for a Veolia Creative Arts Scholarship in 2020.

Two scholarships valued at $3000 each are available to local creative artists working in any arts discipline, including but not limited to, performing arts, visual arts, literature, multi-media and screen arts.

The scholarship program commenced in 2008 and has provided support to more than 40 artists including musicians, authors, painters, film makers, print makers, sculptors, poets and photographers.

The Veolia Creative Arts Scholarships were established to support the creative culture in our region and recognise the valuable contribution artists make to enrich our community.

The 2019 scholarship recipients were Nowra fibre artist Lissa de Sailles (pictured) and Braidwood visual artist Janita Byrne.

The selection committee, headed by Patron of the Veolia Creative Arts Scholarship Jennifer Lamb, will award two $3000 scholarships for artists to further their arts practice or to undertake a program of arts study.

Scholarships are available for practicing and emerging artists from any one of the seven Local Government Areas serviced by the Veolia Mulwaree Trust, including Goulburn Mulwaree, Oberon, Shoalhaven, Upper Lachlan, Wingecarribee, Wollondilly and the former Palerang Council area.

Applications open today and close on 20 March 2019 and are submitted online via mulwareetrust.smartygrants.com.au
