We are directing approximately $5M to the Resilience Fund to provide immediate relief to the Australian arts sector.
The 2020 Resilience Fund is designed to provide emergency relief to support the livelihoods, practice and operations of Australian artists, groups and organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic.
This funding can be combined with relief offered by other arts funding agencies, government departments, support services and philanthropy.
We have developed this program using input and ideas from the arts sector. We gathered this input through various sector roundtables and discussions, feedback and ideas provided to us by artists and organisations we fund and people who have participated in our sector development programs.
There are three streams you can apply for:
Small grants for individuals, groups and organisations to offset or recoup money lost due to cancelled activity.
Grants for individuals, groups and organisations to adapt their arts practice and explore new ways of working.
Grants for individuals, groups and organisations to continue to create artistic work and/or develop creative responses in this time of disruption.
