About the program
The Australian Government International Exhibitions Insurance program offers funding to offset the cost of insurance for eligible exhibitions, increasing audience access to significant cultural material that they would not otherwise have an opportunity to access.
The cultural material in exhibitions must have a minimum value of AUD $50 million for fine art exhibitions or AUD $20 million for museological exhibitions. The proposal can be for either multiple or single venue exhibitions. Insurance cover may apply to multiple or single items within an exhibition that meets the minimum value threshold.
