Key Arts Organisation Funding
The Key Arts Organisation funding category is closed for 2017 and 2018.
The ACT Government is reviewing its funding arrangements and support mechanisms to better align funding with the 2015 ACT Arts Policy. During this review, the Key Arts Organisation category will not be open for applications.
Enquiries about Key Arts Organisation funding should be directed to Robert Piani, Manager - Arts Support, on (02) 6207 2381.
KAOs have strong and strategic governance, management and artistic leadership through dynamic and vibrant artistic programs that are evaluated on a regular basis.
While organisations may also have national, international or other reach or growth aspirations, support for funding in this category is provided on the basis of clear benefits and value to the ACT.
Organisations applying for Key Arts Organisation Funding must be ACT-based not-for-profit incorporated arts organisations.
