This program will distribute $1.55 million over four years (2015 – 2018) across all states and territories in co-funded rounds with the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (Qld and NT), the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation (SA), and the Minderoo Foundation and the Spinifex Trust (WA).
This program seeks to strengthen and grow the independent arts and cultural sector in Australia by granting money to ensembles, collectives, groups and organisations that are highly connected within their sector, and producing excellent work.
Eligibility criteria for the NSW/ACT round of the program will be announced shortly.
This program will assess applicants based on their body of work and their ‘connectivity’ within the sector. ‘Connectivity’ describes an applicant’s relationship with other groups, artists and organisations within the sector. By granting money according to these criteria this program hopes to see impact of the grant felt as broadly beyond the individual recipient as possible.
Alongside the submission of contact details, applicants will detail their production and creative history.
Applicants to this program will be assessed by funders consultation with sector experts.
No feedback on individual applications, successful or otherwise, will be provided.
You can learn more about this program on the Frequently Asked Questions page.
Applications open: 13 August, 2018 and close: 16 September, 2018 at midnight (AEST).
