The Australian Government has announced that more than $760,000 in funding will be shared by nine leading arts and entertainment projects to support cultural and creative opportunities abroad, under the International Cultural Diplomacy Arts Fund (ICDAF).

The funding includes:

  • $140,000 to Belvoir Street Theatre to perform their production, Counting and Cracking, at the Edinburgh International Festival.
  • $175,000 to Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Centre to showcase rare Indigenous bark paintings in America.
  • $102,500 to contemporary circus company, Gravity and Other Myths for their spectacular arena style show, MACRO, at the Edinburgh International Festival.

ICDAF funding supports Australia’s international arts and cultural engagement activities and will play a vital role in supporting organisations and individuals to re-establish cultural linkages in person following major disruptions from COVID-19 over the last two years.

The most recent funding will support theatre, film, visual arts, literature, and classical and contemporary music activities in Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, the United States and Europe.

The Australian Government is investing over $1 billion into the arts and creative sector in 2021-22.
