This program aims to support arts projects, professional development for artists and arts workers, and community capacity building projects.

Grants of up to $30,000 are available. In exceptional circumstances, applicants may be permitted to apply for larger grants.

Funding is available through annual or multi-year agreements, subject to available funds. Multi-year funding is only available to support the development and delivery of a single project across financial years (to a maximum of $30,000 per year). Applicants seeking multi-year funding will be required to provide a strongly argued business case demonstrating the need for, and benefits of, multi-year support and additional budget information.

Eligible projects must be high-quality arts projects benefitting regional or remote artists, arts workers, audiences and communities. The focus of the projects could include any area of:

  • Creative practice
  • Multiple artforms
  • Cross-disciplinary practice


Eligible expenses include, but are not limited to:

  • Artist fees (artists should be appropriately paid)
  • Travel costs (including international)
  • Materials
  • Venue hire
  • Equipment hire
  • Insurance
  • Project administration costs
  • Disability access costs
