Visual Arts

The Australia Council for the Arts supports the contemporary expression of visual art through the broadest range of visual media, including craft, design, media arts and visual arts. This support includes grants to living artists and funding for contemporary arts organisations as well as national and international exhibitions and events. 

By providing support to living artists and arts organisations the Australia Council aims to encourage the engagement of people in Australia and elsewhere in innovative visual art. The Australia Council also allocates funds on behalf of the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy.
