Seven amazing Connection Fellows announced

We are really excited to announce the seven amazing creators we selected for the Creativity Everything Connection Fellowships!⁠

There were 170 applications, all of which were really high quality, and choosing just seven Fellows was extremely difficult.

The Fellows will receive a few different kinds of support from Creativity Everything, and will also be supporting each other in a creative community. In addition, they each receive a mini-bursary of $1,250. (The whole thing is explained more in our call for applications).

David Gauntlett and Mir Asoh are excited to be working with the Fellows to take their work to the next level!

The selected Fellows are:

— Lola Bunz, rising hip hop artist and songwriter
— Kalaisan Kalaichelvan, composer and dancer
— Habiba El-Sayed, ceramic and performance artist
— Vanese Smith, music producer and DJ
— Niya Abdullahi, multi-disciplinary storyteller
— Jordan M. Burns, Indigenous playwright and director
— Pree Rehal, interdisciplinary artist

The selection panel were: Jessy George, Justine Woods, and David Gauntlett.

We will be posting profiles of the Fellows, and more information, on the Creativity Everything website as the Fellowship program goes along.
