Announcement for those affected by the Tasmanian bushfires
Wednesday, 9 January 2013
Arts Tasmania and the Tasmanian Arts Advisory Board express sympathy for the plight of victims caught in the horrific bushfires that have caused devastation around the state.
For artists and arts organisations on the Tasman Peninsula, in the Lake Repulse or Bicheno districts, or in any other areas experiencing bushfires, please note that all reporting deadlines for Arts Tasmania’s programs of assistance due within the next three months are postponed by a further 6 months (31 March deadlines will be extended until 30 September). Similarly, should you be in a bushfire-affected area, any deadlines for the acceptance of grants is extended to 31 December 2013.
Arts Tasmania also has available low-interest loans to provide assistance towards the purchase of equipment, materials, projects and/or financing the time necessary for artists to create new work. Applications can be made at any time.
If you have any questions please call Arts Tasmania on 6237 6323.
Our thoughts are with those affected.
