Arts and cultural heritage organisations are invited to submit applications for innovative projects that increase audience access and participation in Australian cultural life, especially in the regions, or that enhance our international reputation.
Open to small, medium and large arts organisations at national, regional and community level, Catalyst supports projects that demonstrate innovation and increase access and participation.
The Australian Government is investing $12 million annually in Catalyst and funding will be available from three streams: partnerships and collaborations; innovation and participation; and international and cultural diplomacy.
Applications can be made at any time and are assessed quarterly, with the first round of successful applicants announced in early 2016.
Guidelines on how to apply for Catalyst and FAQs are available on the Catalyst page or by calling 1800 590 577.
