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, supporting artists throughout their careers, increasing access to arts and culture, and building the capacity and vibrancy of our national creative and cultural industries – vital contributors to Australia’s culture, identity, society and economy.
