Individual artists,
groups and organisations

We invest in artists and organisations through peer assessed grants, fellowships and awards that enable art to be created and experienced.

Our programs and development initiatives are designed to be complementary. They support artists throughout their careers, increase access to arts and culture, and build the capacity and vibrancy of our cultural and creative industries – vital contributors to Australia’s culture, identity, society and economy.
