Expressions of interest – Arts Industry Development Fund

We are proud to announce an Arts Industry Development Fund to support artists and creatives living and working in the municipality.

A total grant pool of $30,000 has been earmarked for artists and arts organisation representatives, with support of up to $3,000 per submission available to help build capacity.

This initiative is in response to identified community need in the wake of COVID-19. Skills and training were identified as a gap for many artists, in particular:

  • Marketing, promotion, audience retention and development under changing social distancing guidelines;
  • Business viability and innovation;
  • Digital and online technical literacy;
  • OHS and new compliance requirements for venues and community organisations;
  • Mentorships;
  • Project Planning;
  • Financial planning.

Who can apply

Established artists and arts organisation representatives across the arts and creative sectors are encouraged to apply, who:

  • are a permanent resident of the City of Greater Geelong;
  • have a current ABN/ACN or Inc (including sole traders); and
  • have no outstanding debts to Council.

Key dates

  • Submissions are now open and close 30 April.
  • Applicants will be notified by 28 May 2021.
