Applications for 2022 South Australian Living Artist Publication

The Department Of Premier and Cabinet is opening applications for the 2022 South Australian Living Artist Publication on 11 January 2021. The aim of the South Australian Living Artist Publication grant is to support a mid-career or established artist to produce a high quality publication to be used as a promotional tool to develop their career profile nationally and internationally. 

Artists are able to self-nominate for this opportunity but nominations from individuals and organisations on behalf of artists are also encouraged. 

Nominations must include the details and signed permission from the arts writer and emerging arts writer to be commissioned to work on the publication. Both writers must be living and working in South Australia. The nomination must also contain a timeline which includes, amongst other information, the details of an exhibition featuring the work of the nominating/nominated artist which is of national or international importance.
