What is expected of a Fellow?

Fellows are expected to demonstrate their progress through engaging public and staff through
presentations, social media, blogs and other communications. Specifically the following deliverables
are required of each awarded Fellowship.


1. Deliver 2 internal workshops/demos (format to be determined by the nature of the
Fellowship itself) to Cultural Precinct staff on an aspect of their project. This can be conceptual, a demo

The aim of these 2 workshops is to deliver value to internal staff and raise awareness of new
ways of working with digital collections.

fellowship on the Collab website as part of the final delivery of the Fellowship.
