Feedback from the expert peers

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

  • Relevant letters of support can provide the peers with a deep insight into a proposal. Letters should clearly describe the benefit of the project to the artist and school.
  • Artistic support material should be relevant to the proposal.
  • Applicants are advised to use a plain English approach to submission, suitable for assessment to multi-artform peers.
  • Applicants are encouraged to speak with Arts Tasmania officers prior to submitting applications.
