HOMEFRONT – Funding for Canberra Artists (Applications Close) [ACT]
April 17 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EST
The ACT Government recognises the immediate support needed for Canberra artists who have lost their income and ability to maintain their arts practice as a result of COVID-19.
As part of a whole of Government response to the impacts of COVID-19, funding of up to $10,000 per artist will be available for Canberra artists to support arts development and the sustainability of their arts practices over the next 6-9 months. This is across all artforms including screen artists. This includes research and development, making of new works or sharing of works via online platforms, and artists fees and living expenses to undertake arts activities. Artists may also apply for the creation and development of works to be exhibited or performed in public venues in the future, when it becomes safe to undertake these activities.
A total of $500,000 will be available. Applicants will need to provide:
- a statement outlining how the funding will support their arts development and practice;
- a brief bio; and
- a current CV.
Applications are open as of 30 March 2020 and will close on 17 April 2020 at 5pm.
Announcements on successful recipients will be made approximately 1 May 2020.
