Festivals Grants

Festivals Australia

Australian Government Department of Communications and the Arts

Festivals Australia supports community participation in, and access to, the arts and aims to support partnerships and collaboration across the sector.
 
Festivals Australia funds high-quality arts and cultural heritage projects that invite community participation and audience engagement. Projects can include but are not limited to a parade, performance, workshop, installation or exhibition.
 
The aim is to give community members living in regional or remote Australia the chance to participate in or attend an arts experience at a festival, or a significant one-off community celebration.
 
Projects must be a single discrete activity, not a range of unrelated activities across a festival program.
