Individuals can apply for themselves or on behalf of a group. You must be a practicing artist or arts worker, and an Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident.
Australian organisations that create artistic work or provide a service to the arts sector can apply.
We acknowledge there is great need in the sector from both individuals and organisations and expect there will be high demand for the Resilience Fund. Current multi-year funded organisations have guaranteed funding at this point and we have already announced we will be flexible in repurposing these funds and agreements, while many other organisations and individuals do not. For equity, we have chosen to focus our limited resources on the parts of the sector who do not currently have guaranteed funding.
