Kevin Taylor was a founding director of TCL. Throughout his career, Kevin continually explored and challenged how we interact with, interpret and represent the Australian landscape. He was also intrigued by how communities and individuals relate to the civic condition. In 2014 a Legacy was established in Kevin’s name to honour his memory and enduring contribution.

About the grant

The Kevin Taylor Legacy creative grant provides creative individuals or groups the opportunity of a $9,000 (AUD) supported residency program. The grant is open to people of any background interested in exploring the human relationship to landscape and the civic condition.

Dedicated to the practices of landscape architecture, urban design and social planning throughout his career, Kevin Taylor’s work has left an important and valuable legacy that is integral to TCL’s current practice. By offering this¬†creative grant, TCL is seeking to continue and expand fields of inquiry that respond to current practices and conditions.

Grant recipients will work with TCL staff to develop their project and outcomes over 3 to 6 months, during this time they will be given access to and use of TCL studios in Melbourne and/or Adelaide.

An exhibition, performance or event will be held at the end of the residency to showcase the project. Recipients will also be assisted in the documentation of their work, which will be included in ongoing and future publications about the Legacy.

To date TCL have sought applications which are normally due on a specified day in the last third of the year, however due to Covid we have altered the process this year and offered the 2022 grant to a long time TCL collaborator – Karl Winda Telfer – Mullawirrameyunna – Senior Custodian Dry forest tribal family group (of the today known Kaurna).

We will revert to the usual process of seeking applications for future grants.
