Olivia Abbott, Tanaya Barat and Blake Rhodes are the three young emerging NSW-based musicians selected to take their careers to the next level through the first Generations Fellowships from Powerhouse Museum in collaboration with Create NSW and music management and touring company Astral People.

Each artist will receive $25,000 in financial support to undertake a six-month residency with the Powerhouse Museum and receive in-kind industry mentoring and networking from Astral People during their respective residencies. The Generations Fellowship program, comprising in-kind and cash support, is valued at $100,000.

During their fellowship the three NSW-based contemporary musicians Olivia (Coogee), Tanaya (North-Strathfield) and Blake (Lismore) will further develop their skills and knowledge as artists and gain autonomy within the music industry.
