Creative Australia’s Four Year Investment for Organisations (FYIO) program has seen 159 organisations benefit from multi-year investment for 2025–2028.

Creative Australia says this is an increase of 45 organisations compared to the previous round (2021-2024), and also builds on the 128 organisations funded in 2016, the year after the disastrous Brandis raid on what was then known as the Australia Council for the Arts.
