About the opportunity

The International Arts Strategy Outcomes Fund supports opportunities that directly arise from strategic initiatives delivered by the Australia Council in the target international regions under the International Arts Strategy: Europe, North America, North Asia, South and South East Asia. The Fund also supports opportunities that arise from the International Leadership Program (Indo-Pacific) that have received seed funding through the Leadership Program Alumni Collaborations Fund. The fund prioritises outcomes that directly involve and benefit Australian artists, for example tours, presentations, exhibitions and translations of Australian work. 


Please contact us to discuss the eligibility of your application in relation to our international strategic initiatives.
