Welcome to our funding guide
The grant programs for 2013 reflect the Australia Councilâ€™s commitment to investing in excellence across all artforms and throughout artistsâ€™ careers.
Our grant programs cover a wide range of activities including the creation, presentation, publication, performance,and exhibition of artistic works. Funding is also available for artists to develop new skills, undertake residencies and fellowships, and access domestic and international markets for their art.
The most significant additions to our 2013 grants are a number of touring programs, which were previously offered through the Office for the Arts. They are: the Contemporary Touring Initiative, the Contemporary Music Touring Program, Playing Australia, Festivals Australia and Visions of Australia.
The Creative Australia Artists Grants program continues in 2013. This important five-year, $10 million initiative is designed to support artists across all artforms. In 2013,Creative Australia Artist grants will be available for artists working in the artforms of Dance, Inter-Arts, Literature and Music, and fellowships for early career and established artists are available to inter-disciplinary artists.
Our online funding guide provides information about the 92 grants programs and other initiatives on offer in 2013. From time-to-time, new funding opportunities become available, so be sure to visit this site regularly. I hope you find what you are looking for!
