Key Arts Organisation Funding


Key Arts Organisation (KAO) funding supports leading ACT arts organisations to provide programs, services, expertise and infrastructure to support and develop the arts in the ACT, as well as activities that strongly engage with the ACT community. KAOs provide ongoing sector development, career pathways for artists and arts workers, and support a diversity of activity and access opportunities for the ACT community. 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.
