Victorian Circus and Physical Theatre Projects and Capacity Building for Individuals and Groups

Up to $50,000 support for individuals and groups in the circus and physical theatre sector in Victoria.

About the program

This program is designed to specifically support individuals and groups in the circus and physical theatre sector in Victoria. It provides investment to artists at all stages of their career (emerging/mid-career/established), and supports activity with an artistic, mobility or capacity building focus. Applications may be for new work development, collaboration and presentation of work; mobility and market development activities through national or international touring; or professional pathways and skills development activities including training, mentoring and capacity building.

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. It does not extend to dance or dance-theatre.

This program is open to Victoria-based individuals and groups only.

Applicants may apply for investment between $10,000-$50,000 and can propose a single project, a series of projects, or a suite of activities over a fixed period.

Supported activities must last no longer than two years from the proposed start date.
