Funding Opportunity: Community Presenter Touring Grant15.08.2016
Arts On Tour are excited to announce the launch of the Community Presenter Touring Grant, a new funding initiative designed to broaden access to professional productions to audiences throughout NSW.
The grant supports the presentation of professional, NSW-based productions in community-run venues, in regional towns that do not have professional performing arts infrastructure. Funds for this grant have been made available by Arts NSW on behalf of the NSW Government. This is a three-year initiative.
Community presenters can submit a proposal for funding to:
- Extend a regional tour to one or more community-run venues in regional NSW;
- Support a new tour to two or more community-run venues in regional NSW.
Grant funds can be used to support up to 50% of the performance/delivery fee of a touring production. Applicants can apply for:
- Between $500 and $2,500 per venue;
- Up to $7,500 for a consortium of three or more venues.
The first round is now open and closes on Saturday 27 September 2016 for projects between 1 January 2017 and 31 December 2018.
