* The grant’s definition of ‘Emerging Artist’ includes those who are early in their artistic careers (regardless of age) who are gaining momentum or in a stage when this support would be the most impactful. They have a record of having exhibitions and have completed their basic training or reached an equivalent talent in their practice outside of academia. These artists demonstrate potential in their practice and are not yet considered well established professionally by indicators such as major gallery representation, significant exhibition history, awards and commissions, or sustaining an income derived solely from art sales.
