The Australian Government International Exhibitions Insurance (AGIEI) program is a funding program designed to offset insurance costs for touring major exhibitions of cultural material. Generally, these exhibitions include works from international collections.

The program aims to assist cultural institutions to provide access to significant cultural material the Australian public would not otherwise have an opportunity to access. By providing assistance with insurance costs, the Australian Government is able to encourage and support the staging of major exhibitions drawn from some of the world’s most historically significant and culturally rich collections. 


Organisations eligible to apply for funding include Commonwealth, state and territory government collecting institutions; incorporated not-for-profit public collecting institutions, and incorporated not-for-profit bodies specialising in touring significant art and cultural collections. The proposal may be for either multiple or single venue exhibitions.

To be eligible:

• The cultural material in the exhibition must have a minimum value of:

• AUD $50 million for fine art exhibitions[1]

• AUD $20 million for museological exhibitions.

• Insurance cover may apply to multiple or single items within an exhibition that meets the minimum value threshold.

• The exhibition is not eligible for support through a state indemnity scheme.

• Applications from organisations with outstanding reports or financial acquittals from the AGIEI program, or from organisations that are otherwise in breach of an AGIEI funding arrangement, are not eligible for support.

Grant Activity Timeframe:

Applications are sought for projects commencing between 1 July 2020 and
31 December 2021.
