Tuesday, 4 February 2014

Key Dates:

3 March (Applications close)

The Artists with Disability Program provides funding for Australian artists with disability (including Deaf artists) to create, develop, present, produce, exhibit and/or tour their work.

This is a pilot initiative which specifically addresses the need for an accessible, dedicated funding program to support the work of artists with disability across Australia.

The program is open to individuals and groups and is specifically for people who identify as having a disability.

Applicants from Indigenous, regional, culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and young people are particularly encouraged to apply.

Projects may start from 1 June 2014 and must be completed by 30 June 2015.

The two categories available through this program are:

  • Development - supports activities that primarily contribute to the development of the individual or group applying. This can include activities that deliver creative development, skills development, professional development and career development benefits. Applicants can request up to $10,000

Examples: This can include, but is not limited to, mentorships, training, workshops, creation of new work, travel and other skills or professional development projects.

  • Art Projects - supports the delivery of projects that have a public outcome. Applications can include multiple stages of activity. Applicants can request up to $20,000.

Examples: This can include, but is not limited to, final stages of creative development, remounts, performances, touring, exhibitions, community art projects, publishing, recording, festivals, audiences engagement and promotion.
