Multi-year investment

Darwin festival

Our multi-year investment programs support some of Australia’s most innovative and creative arts organisations.

Multi-year investment organisations supported by the Australia Council provide opportunities and employment for individual creative artists to perform, exhibit, publish, record, distribute or present a spectacular array of Australian and international work. Organisations work across First Nations arts, visual arts, dance, theatre, music, literature, community arts and cultural development, and emerging and experimental arts.

Our nationwide investment in multi-year organisations increases access to arts and culture for all Australians, and contributes to the capacity and vibrancy of our national creative and cultural industries.

We provide advice and analysis to organisations and work strategically with state and territory government funding partners to build knowledge and measure the impact of this investment.
