Key Arts Organisation Funding
The Key Arts Organisation funding category is closed.
The ACT Government is undertaking a review of funding arrangements and is developing a new Arts Funding Plan. The Plan aims to include an overview of funding categories, support mechanisms and priorities, and aligns funding with the 2015 ACT Arts Policy. The following link provides more information on the Arts Funding Plan.
Any questions about Key Arts Organisation funding or the Arts Funding Plan should be directed to Lynton Sheehan, Program Manager, on (02) 62076423.
Funding for one-off activities in 2018 is available through the Project Funding category, which closes on Monday 7 August 2017.
KAOs are expected to 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.
