Lloyd Martin Travelling Scholarship for Emerging Arts Leaders
The Lloyd Martin Travelling Scholarship for Emerging Arts Leaders is a new Opera House initiative to help the next generation of arts managers tackle the increasingly complex landscape facing cultural institutions in the 21st century. The AUD$20,000 annual Scholarship funds an overseas residency or study trip for a person in the early stages of their career, and honours the memory of Lloyd Martin, the Opera House’s longest-serving general manager (1978-97). Additional background information about the Scholarship can be found here (PDF).

House staff and resident company staff in the first half of 2015.
As a guide only, the 2014

Applications will be accepted from
current staff members of the Opera House, or current staff members of any of
its seven flagship resident companies: the Australian Chamber Orchestra,

Orchestra, Sydney Theatre Company, or The Australian Ballet. Please note that
the Scholarship focuses on people working in areas that are increasingly
critical to the viability and success of arts companies and cultural institutions,

areas will not, however, be excluded.
