The program aims to inspire, educate and entertain audiences and allow them to experience significant cultural collections and stories from across Australia. The program gives Australians the opportunity to access collection material that might not otherwise travel to regional areas.
The program provides around $2.4 million to arts and cultural heritage organisations each financial year. Funding contributes to costs associated with the development and touring of exhibitions based on material of historic, scientific, design, social or artistic significance.
Applications close on Friday 6 October 2017 at 5.00pm AEST.
The next funding round will be open in early 2018.
