About the opportunity

Applications are now open for support to attend the Performing Arts Meeting in Yokohama (TPAM), Japan, 2020. 

TPAM is one of the most established and influential performing arts platforms in Asia; a space where people from various places in the world who are professionally involved in performing arts get together for exchange through diverse performance and meeting programs that take place under the TPAM umbrella. The focus for the 2020 platform will be on dance in Asia.

The Australia Council’s International Development Manager – North Asia, will work with the delegation in Yokohama.

Australia Council support will provide delegates with $2,500 each towards the cost of travel. Delegates will be responsible for all costs associated with attending the meeting including flights, visas, insurance, accommodation and registration.

Diversity and access

The Australia Council encourages applications from applicants who identify as First Nations, from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, people with disability, and people living in regional and remote areas. 

The Australia Council’s programs and processes are designed for accessibility and best use by a diverse demographic. We work with individual applicants to find the best approach to accommodating access, childcare, carer and other support needs. Please contact us at least 2 weeks prior to the closing date to discuss your access and support requirements.

Supporting material

No supporting material or submitted budget is required. Please note that applicants will be unable to attach supporting material to your online application.

Selection process

Australia Council staff will consider applications according to the selection criteria above and will seek recommendations by industry advisors as needed.

You will be informed of the outcome of your application by late September 2019.

Changes to grants payments

The way Australia Council grants payments are made has changed. Effective immediately, grant recipients will no longer send an invoice for payment of a grant. Instead, after you accept our offer of funding, we will pay your grant into your nominated bank account and send you a Recipient Created Tax Invoice (RCTI).

Important information for administered grants

If you plan to have your grant administered by a third party, applicants will now need to ensure that the administrator is registered on the Australia Council online system before you begin your application. This means you cannot complete or submit an application if your administrator is not registered.

Note, applications to International Development funding opportunities do not count as an application to the Australia Council Grants Program.
