The Australian Government International Exhibitions Insurance (AGIEI) program is now open for applications.
7 February 2022

The AGIEI program offsets the cost of insurance for international exhibitions touring to Australia.

It supports Australian cultural institutions to bring exhibitions from some of the world's most historically significant and culturally rich collections to new audiences and communities across Australia.

To be eligible, organisations must be:

  • a Commonwealth, state or territory government collecting institution
  • an incorporated not-for-profit public collecting institution; or
  • an incorporated not-for-profit body specialising in touring large art and cultural exhibitions.

The program provides around $2.4 million each year to cultural institutions and is delivered through a two-stage process.

Applications close 8 April 2022 and can be made through the GrantConnect website.
