List of Key Organisations

Through the Key Organisations program the Australia Council provides multi-year core program funding to leading small to medium companies who are recognised for their national leadership in artistic excellence and the critical role they play in the Australian arts landscape. The Key Organisations program will conclude at the end of 2016 and will be replaced by the Four Year Funding program. Four Year Funding is part of the Australia Council’s new grants model which launched in January 2015.
