8 September 2022

The Festivals Australia program supports individual arts projects at regional or remote festivals and significant one-off community celebrations.

Support for activities starting from 1 February 2023 is now available through Round 15 of the program.

Projects should encourage people living in or visiting regional or remote Australia to participate in or appreciate an arts-driven experience. They can include, but are not limited to, a performance, workshop, installation, parade or exhibition held as part of a festival or a significant one-off community event.

Regional artists, arts workers and organisations are eligible to apply.

Up to $1.3 million is provided through the program each financial year through 2 competitive funding rounds, opening around February and September.

Applications close 5 October 2022, 23.59 AEDT.
