About The Program

The Visions of Australia program funds the development and touring of exhibitions of cultural material of historic, scientific, design, social or artistic significance.

Tours must include at least three venues outside the organisation's home state or territory. Regional and remote venues are a higher priority for funding.

All applications are assessed with the assistance of independent assessors.
