FESTIVALS AUSTRALIA funding

What is on offer?

Festivals Australia supports community participation in, and access to, the arts and aims to support partnerships and collaboration across the sector. 

Regional artists, arts workers, and organisations can apply for arts and cultural projects that encourage community participation and audience engagement from people living in regional and remote communities in a festival or community celebration.

Festivals Australia funds high-quality arts and cultural heritage projects that invite community participation and audience engagement. Projects can include but are not limited to a parade, performance, workshop, installation or exhibition.

The aim is to give community members living in regional or remote Australia the chance to participate in or attend an arts experience at a festival, or a significant one-off community celebration.

Please note: Festivals Australia will only fund a single project at a festival, not a range of unrelated activities across a festival program.

Opens: 19 February. Closes 16 March.
