Kate Beynon Awarded Yarra Arts Fellowship 2024

The inaugural Yarra Arts Fellowship has been awarded to artist Kate Beynon by the City of Yarra. This new award provides a $10,000 grant to artists working in the City of Yarra, Melbourne, in order for them to focus more intently on their practice by reducing the financial burden associated with a sustained creative practice.

With support from the fellowship, Beynon will create a body of new works that explore an interest in socially engaged space- both through her studio at Collingwood Yards and other interactive spaces in Yarra- using colour, imagination, and shared experiences.
