New investment in Australian artists

The Australia Council for the Arts welcomes the budget announcement of $10 million in new funding for artists. The initiative will support artists across all artforms to deliver new artistic works, undertake fellowships and create additional presentations to Australian audiences over the next five years as part of the Government’s commitment to invest in a creative Australia.

The Australia Council will promote the new opportunities as they become available through its funding forums, marketing campaigns and online resources. Council will specifically focus on attracting applications from artists facing specific access barriers such as artists with a disability, artists from non-English speaking and culturally diverse backgrounds, and artists in regional and remote areas.
