The Library’s Creative Fellowship program provides artists and scholars with a unique and supportive environment in which to immerse themselves in our collections. We invite recipients to be inspired by, repurpose, transform or imaginatively respond to published or original sources, such as manuscripts, maps, music, newspapers, oral histories and rare printed material, in any way they choose.
Applicants may be individuals or be working in collaborative partnerships. They may include artists practising in any art form – such as the visual arts, new media, dance, musical performance or composition – and writers and scholars in any discipline or subject.
Fellows receive a grant of $12,500 for three months’ research, space in a shared office that is accessible outside normal Library hours, and special access to collections and staff expertise

Adnate is an artist that realizes his portraits in spray paint. He has moved past his roots in graffiti, utilizing the medium to carry his realist style into the fine art realm.
Heavily influenced by the chiaroscuro of renaissance painters like Caravaggio, Adnate embraces portraiture like the masters of the XXI Century.
Elevating graffiti art above the level of letter writing, Adnate’s subject matter and their subsequent status often belies the intent of his portraits.
His works are often cropped by evocative slices of vibrant colour, channelling a presence of character, much like a still life uses it’s background as a setting for detail and showing of fine brushstrokes. Adnate’s realism is highlighted by the use of what appears careless, but is frequently calculated blocks of vibrant colour.
