Community Outreach arts funding


Community Outreach Arts Funding Round

The Community Outreach Arts funding round closed on 31 July 2018.

The aim of the Community Outreach Arts funding round is to increase participation in the arts and promote collaboration between organisations, artists and the community. The funding will have an emphasis on engaging sectors of the community that otherwise may experience barriers or disadvantage that inhibit their participation in the arts.

The funding round will be on a one-off basis through an open round and will be available to ACT incorporated organisations and to ACT based individual artists and groups through an auspice arrangement with a not-for-profit organisation. $325,000 will be available for this funding round.

The funding will provide increased opportunities for the Canberra community to engage in the arts and will provide organisations with the opportunity to develop and trial new community outreach activities and partnerships. It supports a wide range of arts and cultural activities where artists work in partnership with individuals and communities for the purpose of artistic growth and other outcomes including promoting positive change.

Projects should prioritise excellence in art making and/or the process of developing the artistic skills of the community. Priority for funding will be projects which form part of a long term engagement strategy.
