The ACT Arts Fund

Arts Activities funding is available to ACT-based artists at all stages of their careers and to organisations providing the Canberra community with opportunities to engage in the arts.

Arts Activities funding supports artists, groups and arts organisations to undertake a range of activities including artform-based projects, mentorships, residencies, professional or skills development, and opportunities for the community to actively engage in the arts. Activities can relate to artforms including dance, literature, music, theatre, visual arts and arts based festivals.

From 1 June 2018, two categories will be available:

  • Up to $5k – for smaller projects, with applications open all year round
  • $5-50k - for larger projects, with two rounds open each year. Round one closed 31 July 2018. The next round will open 1 December 2018 and will close 28 February 2019 for activities starting from 1 July 2019
