NEXUS Arts Grants | NOW OPEN

Friday, 29 January 2016

Key Dates:

Applications close: Monday 14 March 2016 (5pm)

There are three funding categories for grants of up to $2,000, $5,000 and $10,000 for young artists with disability (aged between 16 and 25) from metropolitan and regional WA looking to extend their artistic interests.

The Nexus Arts Grant has been purposely designed for young
people with disability between the ages of 16 and 25. Young artists
from metropolitan and regional WA looking to extend their artistic
interests, including those who are studying art in educational
institutions or participating in post school options programs which
facilitate art workshops, are encouraged to apply for this

The aim of the Nexus Arts Grant is to provide young people with
disability who have been creating art the opportunity to further
build their skills in their arts practice in order to achieve their
full potential. The grant also aims to provide arts opportunities
for emerging young artists with disability, including school
leavers wishing to develop their careers as artists in their chosen
art form. It is intended that as a result of the Nexus Arts Grant
the arts skills developed will potentially allow each recipient to
further their arts practice, increase their portfolio, and strive
to become artists in their own right.

The Nexus Arts Grant is funded through a grant received from the
Disability Services Commission. The information booklet and
application form for the grant can be downloaded from HERE.
