Partnerships and Scholarships

Program Overview

We regularly seek out strategic partnerships with other institutions to invest in arts leadership development beyond what the Australia Council will deliver directly. These partnerships enhance the program by targeting specific priority areas that are not covered by the core program. We acknowledge other organisations might be better placed than the Australia Council to deliver certain priority areas or already have programs in place that we can play a role in, enhancing outcomes for the sector.
