Victorian Circus and Physical Theatre Operations for Organisations
This program offers up to $300,000 support for two-years of operations and activity for micro and small-medium organisations in the circus and physical theatre sector in Victoria.
About the program
This program is designed to specifically support micro and small-medium organisations in the circus and physical theatre sector in Victoria. It provides a fixed term investment for core operations, staffing, programs, and artistic activity to build stability and capacity in the sector.
Creative Australia and Creative Victoria are jointly managing strategic initiatives to support the circus and physical theatre sector in Victoria through to the end of 2024, guided by the principles of the National Performing Arts Partnership Framework.
Responding to the needs and opportunities identified in the Victorian Circus and Physical Theatre Scan undertaken in 2023, two investment opportunities will be delivered by Creative Australia in early 2024: Operations for Organisations and Projects and Capacity Building for Individuals and Groups.
This program supports circus and physical theatre practice only. It does not extend to dance or dance-theatre.
This program is open to Victoria based organisations only.
Applicants may apply for up to $300,000 for two years of operational costs (up to $150,000 per year), to be paid in one instalment.
Supported activities must last no longer than two years from the proposed start date. The applicant may determine the most appropriate start date for their organisation, the earliest being 1 July 2024. For your planning, please note that the budget template runs across two calendar or two financial years (i.e. 2024/2025 and 2025/2026 or 2025 and 2026).
Please read through the following grant guidelines.
