Quick-response arts grants

Does your arts project or practice need a quick boost? Maybe a potential collaborator is in town, or an unexpected opportunity has popped up? Apply for a quick-response arts grant to make it happen.

Councillor Rohan Leppert, Chair of the Chair of the Arts, Culture and Heritage portfolio said the objective of this pilot program is to support artists of all backgrounds, career stages, and art-forms, to take advantage of opportunities that arise at short notice.

‘We want to help artists test, develop and realise ideas that build our city profile as a place for experimentation, expression and excellence,’ Cr Leppert said.

‘Creativity plays a transformative role in building all aspects of a bold, innovative and sustainable city. By nurturing creativity, we can inspire new ideas and new connections to help address our city’s challenges.’

‘The quick response arts grants program will also help ensure accessible and ever-present arts and creative activity for locals and visitors to experience.’

​Artists and small-to-medium sized arts organisations can apply for up to $4,000 through the quick-response arts grants pilot.
