Northern Tasmania Arts Organisations Initiative 2018-19

The expert peers have recommended that six projects be supported with funds of $103 234 in this round.

The funding recommendations were made by expert peers drawn from the Cultural and Creative Industries Expert Register.

Feedback from the expert peers

The peers provided the following feedback for current and future applicants:

  • Applicants should use clear language in their submissions and avoid jargon. Peers found submissions incorporating dot points easy to follow.
  • Application budgets should be based on planning and include some detail of the basis of costs (for example, projected hours, hourly rates, etc.).
  • If an application is for funding for a new component of an existing project, applicants should outline how the submission will build on or add value to the project.
  • The peers encouraged more northern arts organisations to consider applying for the program, even for small projects.
