Cultural Fund Supports RMIT Writer-in-Residence
September 28, 2011 | Author
The Copyright Agency Cultural Fund is proud to be supporting RMIT University’s newly appointed writer-in-residence, Kim Scott.
Kim will be at RMIT until 14 October as part of the Cultural Fund-supported StoriesNOW program, under which RMIT will be hosting a series of creative residencies. The residencies are to run for one month and the practitioners will be provided with quiet creative space and access to RMIT’s research resources and academic expertise.
CAL CEO, Jim Alexander said that ‘we know how productive and beneficial the CAL Writer-in-Residence program can be for students and the wider community. It makes an immeasurable contribution to the broader learning experience for students, while providing additional growth opportunities for the participating writers themselves.
‘CAL’s Cultural Fund is proud to be associated with such a worthwhile program supporting creators in Australia. We look forward to hearing good reports of the benefits gleaned from Kim Scott’s participation in the program – and we’re sure these benefits will be built on further by future participants as the series of month-long residencies continues.’
