2020 Annual Arts Grants applications open 24 May and close 24 June.
Each year our annual arts grants support and celebrate our creative community.
Grants are available to artists, creatives and arts organisations across all disciplines and to people from all backgrounds and abilities in three categories:
- Arts projects
- Aboriginal arts projects
- Arts residencies
You can be located anywhere to apply, but your funding must result in a public outcome activated within the City of Melbourne municipality.
All applications are assessed by an independent external panel.
Information sessions and grant writing workshops will run through May and June to assist in the process. Spots are limited, so book early.
We’re committed to investing in the arts to foster the vibrant creative life of the city. Read more about the City of Melbourne objectives and priorities for A Creative City in Council Plan 2017-21.
