With devolved funding from Arts NSW, M&G NSW are providing a range of Mentorships and Fellowships for regional museum and gallery staff to expand their experience within the sector. M&G NSW can match successful applicants with an institution or applicants can arrange their own placement. The grants cover costs assocated with travel, accommodation and incidentals.
Applicants can choose to undertake a placement within Australia (Mentorships) or the Asia Pacific (Fellowships).
Last year’s Mentorship recipients spent time at institutions including the National Gallery of Australia, Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Powerhouse Museum and have returned with stories of valuable experiences, providing fresh perspectives and new industry contacts. Fellowship recipients last year were placed in the National Museum of Singapore, the Asian Civilizations Museum and the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
Amount available: Up to $2,500 for each mentorship
Up to $5,000 for each Fellowship
