Arts Minister Senator George Brandis has announced the Festivals Australia and Visions of Australia regional touring programs are now open for applications.
Festivals Australia and Visions of Australia are administered by the Ministry for the Arts and enable artists and organisations to shape Australia's cultural landscape, increase cultural diversity and inspire, educate and entertain audiences across Australia.
Funding is available for projects and tours that increase access to and participation in the arts and cultural heritage for Australians living in regional and remote communities. Two funding rounds will take place each year.
Applications to Festivals Australia and Visions of Australia close on Friday 9 October 2015.
