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.
There are two funding rounds each year which generally open in February and September
Current Round: 22 February 2021 to 19 March 2021
The above funding period is for projects commencing from 1 July 2021.
