Graduate Pathway Program
Illuminate Adelaide Graduate Pathway Program
The Illuminate Adelaide Graduate Pathway Program is a professional development opportunity offered to recent Adelaide Central School of Art graduates, supporting their transition from student to a career as a practicing artist.
Made possible with thanks to the generous support from the James & Diana Ramsay Foundation, and presented in partnership with the Adelaide Central School of Art, recent graduates (2016 - 2020) are invited to submit a creative proposal forming part of the Illuminate Adelaide program in 2022. The co-Founders and Creative Directors of Illuminate Adelaide will select up to three proposals for presentation.
The opportunity to work within the specialised and often financially prohibitive fields of light and technology is rarely afforded to recent graduates. The expertise and resources of Illuminate Adelaide will enable these early career practitioners to develop vital skills and portfolio work, aiding their transition from student to professional artist.
Selected recipients will be matched with mentors to support their practice and extend their ambition. In this way, the selected artists enhance their skills, but also grow their professional networks.
The Illuminate Adelaide Graduate Pathway Program offers recent graduates a fully funded career development opportunity including possible presentation of their work within a highly visible public platform, being the Illuminate Adelaide 2022 event, including:
A $5,000 commission fee paid to the selected artist/s (one to three selected per annum)
$2,000 per selected artist/s supporting costs associated with presentation of their work
A 6-month professional development opportunity including an introduction to a committed mentor working in an associated field/practice.
Adelaide Central School of Art graduates of the Bachelor of Visual Art and/or Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours) program are eligible to apply for the Illuminate Adelaide Graduate Pathway Program opportunity up to five years following the successful completion of their studies. Graduates may only submit one proposal at a time. Multiple applications will not be considered. Proposals must respond to themes of art and technology.
Applications due 30 September, 5pm (Adelaide, SA).APPLY HERE
