Congratulations to the six New Zealand-based arts practitioners chosen for the inaugural Digital Fellowship Program, an opportunity to collaborate with each other and six Australia-based arts practitioners to explore and co-develop their digital practice.

The New Zealand-based arts practitioners are Michel Mulipola, Sione Faletau, Rosanna Raymond, Katrina Iosia, Jamie Berry and George Turner.

This is a new opportunity under our Pacific Arts Strategy and International Programme to continue to support Aotearoa arts practitioners to build new skills in the Digital Moana space. The program, administered and delivered by Australia Council for the Arts in collaboration with Creative New Zealand, prioritises collaborative learning, as well as individual practice development, through a series of curated online group sessions and mentoring.

Originally offered for 10 New Zealand and Australia-based arts practitioners working across any artform, due to the significant interest and high calibre of the applicants the program has been expanded to include 12 arts practitioners – six from each country. This includes dedicated positions for Pasifika, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts practitioners.

The six-month program gets underway in mid-January and runs through to June 2022.
