$15M support for VIC as rehearsals begin for some

Individuals can apply for one-off grants of $5000 to develop new work or undertake professional development.

A new $15 million funding package designed to support artists and arts organisations as lockdown eases has been announced by the Victorian Government.

The funding includes $5 million for individual creative workers and micro-businesses, with the remaining $10 million targeting creative organisations of state significance that have been heavily affected by Victoria’s latest lockdown.
