Funding and support for arts and creatives

4 Jun 2020
Vibrant and Prosperous Economy

We have launched a new creative industries program of small fellowships, workshops and mentoring opportunities, to help artists across Manningham develop new projects and to support them at this time.

Under the program, up to eight small fellowships of up to $2000 will be offered to contemporary artists to research and develop new bodies of work and art projects such as site-specific installations, non-gallery based exhibitions, performances and other public programs.

Under a second phase of funding, up to four of these fellowships will be translated into contemporary art projects to be delivered within Manningham.

For more information and to apply visit Arts and Creative Industries Small Fellowships.

If you’re a local artist who’s running a small business and looking for assistance, there are other support options available.

Free business mentoring is available for artists, makers, designers and other creative industries professionals operating as sole traders or running a small businesses. These free sessions can help build your capacity and support you in adapting to increased online work, marketing and crisis management.

Sessions will be held on Tuesday 14 July and Thursday 23 July, from 5.30pm to 8.00pm and you can register by visiting Arts and Creative Industries Support Program.
