The Australian Government International Exhibitions Insurance (AGIEI) program is a funding program designed to offset insurance costs for touring major exhibitions of cultural material. Generally, these exhibitions include works from international collections.
The program aims to assist cultural institutions to provide access to significant cultural material the Australian public would not otherwise have an opportunity to access. By providing assistance with insurance costs, the Australian Government is able to encourage and support the staging of major exhibitions drawn from some of the world’s most historically significant and culturally rich collections.
Organisations eligible to apply for funding include Commonwealth, state and territory government collecting institutions; incorporated not-for-profit public collecting institutions, and incorporated not-for-profit bodies specialising in touring significant art and cultural collections. The proposal may be for either multiple or single venue exhibitions.
