4A Emerging Writer’s Program — May 2019

May 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am - May 24, 2019 @ 5:00 pm AEST

About the 4A Emerging Writer’s Program

Following the inaugural offering in 2016, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art is pleased to announce the fourth consecutive 4A Emerging Writer’s Program that will support an emerging Australian writer to travel to Indonesia in 2019 and realise two publication outcomes.

4A Emerging Writer’s Program is open to all Australian emerging writers and suits individuals with a keen interest in fieldwork research in art and culture from the Asia Pacific region, and someone who can demonstrate a flair and passion for writing.

The selected writer will undertake up to a two-week research trip to Indonesia in late 2019. Facilitated by 4A and its networks, the writer will be asked to conceive and deliver two writing outcomes for publication in 4A Papers and program supporter Art Monthly Australasia. This may include a critical essay, historical research, interview, review, profile, or feature with accompanying online audio-visual content. The writer will be supported by the team at 4A and its networks in Indonesia, and in particular by Pedro de Almeida, Editor, 4A Papers and Michael Fitzgerald, Editor, Art Monthly Australasia.

4A Emerging Writer’s Program has been developed as part of 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art’s broader professional development program for early career arts professionals. Together with the annual 4A Beijing Studio Program and the biannual 4A Curators’ Intensive, the 4A Emerging Writer’s Program supports emerging Australian talent to work within the Asia-Pacific region.

4A Emerging Writer’s Program is an initiative of 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and supported by Art Monthly Australasia and the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body.

Please note: Peril provides these details as a courtesy, but we’re not in charge of the events, so please don’t harrass us if the Facebook page is down for a particular event – unless we make that really really clear, in which case you’ll know because we’ll probably be hounding to you come along.

We’re free to access and want to keep it that way. If you want to ensure Asian Australian voices – in all their diversity and complexity – continue to be heard, please consider making a donation.
