Project Grants

Project Grants support independent artists in the development of new work and its production or presentation. The grant also assists touring and expansion of markets of new and existing works, regionally, nationally and internationally.

In Performing Arts, funded activity may include playwriting, dramaturgy, creative development periods, performances, seasons of work and touring regionally, nationally and internationally.

In Literature, funded activity may include research, manuscript draft and development, translation of work and concentrated periods of work on a project.

In Visual Arts, Craft and Design, funded activity may include development, making of work, concentrated periods of work on a project, exhibitions and touring locally or abroad. Assistance is also available for marketing and promotion of exhibitions throughout Australia and internationally. Funding generally covers costs associated with publications such as brochures or catalogues. These marketing tools are most effective when created in collaboration with the presenting venue and as part of a long-term career development plan.

Development of new work might involve periods in the studio or rehearsal room, or working with other artists. Applicants may seek assistance towards various stages of the work’s development with, or without, a public outcome. Research projects are eligible if the applicant has a track record of achievement.

If you wish to tour your work in regional South Australia please contact Country Arts SA on 08 8444 0400.
