Festivals Australia provides funding to support individual art projects at festivals or significant one-off community events, such as a town’s centenary celebration or opening of a major new community resource.
Festivals Australia will:
• provide access to a diverse range of high quality, innovative arts projects that grow audiences at festivals across regional Australia
• support partnerships and collaboration across the arts sector
• encourage community participation in arts projects at regional and remote festivals.
The program delivers two funding rounds each year usually opening in February and September. The Minister for Communications,Cyber Safety and the Arts(or his delegate) approves funding under the Program Guidelines.
There is no limit to the amount of funding that may be sought, however the average funding request is around $40,000.
Funding is available through annual or multi-year funding agreements subject to available funds. Multi-year funding is only available to support the development and delivery of a single project across financial years.
Funding is available for projects commencing from 1 July 2020.
