RMIT Culture is thrilled to announce applications are open for the 2022 $3,000 Cultural Visions Grants.
This grant supports two RMIT students who wish to make an artistic piece that explores the dynamics and exchange of culture within Australia – past, present and/or future. The Cultural Visions Grant recognises the diversity of voices in Australia and proposed creative works should highlight diversity and encourage your peers' awareness of different cultures.
One award will be granted to an undergraduate student, a second to a postgraduate applicant.
RMIT Culture unites the university's public cultural spaces, creative programs and art, film and design collections, providing opportunities to engage creatively, as well as supporting RMIT's learning and teaching activities, and disseminating its research. To be eligible for the grant, applicants need to be currently enrolled at RMIT in standard semester 1, 2021; able to demonstrate a lived experience of cultural diversity; be available to attend an interview if shortlisted, and be able and committed to producing the project within the year of receiving the award.
To apply, submit an application package that consists of:
- a sample of your work;
- a project proposal, no more than three pages, which includes a description of the proposed project and the reason for choosing the proposed project;
- a summary risk assessment* of the project;
- a statement of the benefit of the project to the location and people involved (Australia or overseas);
- and an outline of the medium which will be used and what the outcome will be.
