    • 2018 Participation for CALD Seniors Grants Program
      2018 Participation for CALD Seniors Grants Program

      The Participation for CALD Seniors Grants Program offers small grants to organisations to create or expand community participation opportunities for isolated culturally diverse seniors. Evidence shows that older people from culturally diverse backgrounds are often at a higher risk of social isolation due to a range of factors such as language and cultural barriers, lack of confidence and limited awareness of services available to them.

      Eligible organisations such as seniors clubs, ethnic community groups, migrant resource centres, neighbourhood houses, aged care facilities, local councils and other not for profit organisations are invited to apply for funding up to $10,000.

      Applications must be lodged by 5pm, 1 June 2018. Please note that no late or incomplete applications will be considered. Successful applicants will be awarded grants for projects commencing 1 October 2018 and concluding on 30 September 2019.

    • Amor Residency at Baldessin Press & Studio
      Amor Residency at Baldessin Press & Studio

      The State Library Victoria, in partnership with the Baldessin Press, offers a special residency opportunity as part of the annual fellowship program.

      The Amor Residency at Baldessin Press & Studio is generously supported by artist Rick Amor and the Baldessin Press & Studio in St Andrews. Situated in bushland 50 km from Melbourne, the studio is named in memory of artist, printmaker and sculptor George Baldessin (1939–78), who built the bluestone studio in 1971.

      The residency is offered to a visual artist wishing to explore works on paper, in particular printmaking or artists books, using research material from the State Library.

      The Amor Residency at Baldessin Press & Studio may take place at any time within the year of the award, according to the recipient's project and research plans. The offer may include accommodation, printmaking tuition or technical support, materials or editioning to the sum of $5000.

      The recipient also has the opportunity to participate in an event to present their project to the Library, the public and other supporters.

      Applications for the 2018–19 residency are now open. Applications must be emailed by 6pm on Sunday 22 April 2018 to fellows@slv.vic.gov.au.
