Llewellyn Hall Funding

This category is closed.

2017 Funding

The Llewellyn Hall specific funding category will not be open this year, for 2017 funding.

As an alternative interim arrangement, applications for presenting activity in Llewellyn Hall can be applied for through the 2017 Project funding category. Applications must address the Project funding guidelines and will be considered alongside other Project applications and compete on merit in that round. 

artsACT is currently undertaking a review of funding arrangements and developing a new Arts Funding Plan, aligned with the 2015 ACT Arts Policy, which will set out the ACT Government’s arts funding priorities. 

artsACT commenced community consultation on the Arts Funding Plan through the CBRarts Forum ‘Making CBRarts Happen’ held on 17 March 2016. Discussions on the development of the Plan will continue during 2016 and we welcome any submissions by 13 May 2016.

We anticipate that a new Arts Funding Plan will be considered by government at the end of 2016, and that it will inform a revised ACT Arts Fund, including possible changes to funding categories and delivery mechanisms. Following the ACT Government’s approval of a new Arts Funding Plan, artsACT will launch the revised ACT Arts Fund, anticipated to commence in 2018.

As a consequence of developing the Arts Funding Plan, artsACT has implemented a number of interim arrangements across the ACT Arts Fund, including not opening the Llewellyn Hall funding category in 2016 for funding in 2017.

Any queries on Llewellyn Hall funding should be directed to Jim Adamik, Program Manager, on 6207 2379.


Llewellyn Hall External Link is a concert venue owned by the Australian National University (ANU). It provides high quality acoustics, large stage and backstage amenities, and can seat 1,400 patrons.

The ACT Government has a funding category to enable affordable access to Llewellyn Hall and its associated rehearsal spaces, as part of meeting the aims of the ACT Arts Policy. Within this category ongoing support is provided to the Canberra Symphony Orchestra to perform its concert series at the Hall. A balance of funding is available for other eligible organisations to present up to three music concerts. Funding can support the direct costs of hiring Llewellyn Hall and its associated rehearsal spaces including direct hire charge and ANU staffing costs. The funding does not cover any equipment, instruments, catering, ticketing, marketing, recording, administration, aisle removal or any other indirect expenses.


Information about the accessibility of this facility can be found on the Enable Canberra websiteExternal Link
