If you are organising a festival or significant one-off community celebration in regional Australia, you may be eligible to apply for Festivals Australia funding. Festivals Australia will fund high-quality arts projects that participants and audiences can engage with, through activities like performances, workshops, installations and exhibitions. 

The Festivals Australia program seeks to celebrate the intrinsic capacity of the arts to engage, inspire and make meaning for all Australians, while supporting the celebration of place and promoting a sense of community identity. 

Up to $1.2 million is available each year through 2 funding rounds to support arts activities. Applications for this funding round will close on Friday 22 March 2019 at 11:59pm (ADST).
