Our artist in residence, Erica is one of eighteen local creative practitioners and collectives that have received support through the Creators Fund to undertake intensive research, experimentation and development that will take their careers, practice and businesses to a new level.
An initiative of the Creative State strategy, the Creators Fund takes inspiration from initiatives in the science and technology sectors by offering practitioners support to undertake the R&D that underpins major new projects, products and discoveries.
The latest Creators will take between 3-6 months out from their regular practice to focus on learning new skills, working with mentors, exploring new technologies and undertaking creative experiments.
154 applications were received for the latest round. The 18 Creators will share in grants totalling $679,086.
