Tasmanian Theatre Fund

The expert peers have recommended that one organisation be supported with funds of $400 000 over two years.

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 applicants:

  • The peers encouraged applicants to be upfront and clear in articulating an artistic vision. Each activity mentioned in the application should be tied to or support that artistic vision. Many applicants detailed what was proposed, but did not articulate why, which would have greatly assisted the peer assessors to better understand what organisations were trying to achieve.
  • Arts Tasmania expects that arts professionals are paid fairly for their work and this should be reflected within each funding application.
  • Applications should include letters of support or confirmation, and avoid speculation about collaborations or partnerships that are yet to be confirmed.
  • The importance of well-curated artistic support material was discussed at length, with the peers noting that it was difficult to assess the quality of past work when the only material provided was images or text produced for promotional purposes. Where possible, applicants should provide clear video documentation of previous productions.


The following organisation received funding through Arts Tasmania’s Tasmanian Theatre Fund.

Blue Cow Theatre Inc. - $200 000 towards activities in 2019 and $200 000 towards activities in 2020.
