Who can apply?

  • Organisations based in Tasmania

Organisations in receipt of support under Arts Tasmania’s Cultural Heritage Program are not eligible to apply for funding towards activities that are already supported.

Applicants must meet Arts Tasmania’s general eligibility requirements.

What can I apply for?

Organisations can apply for up to four years of funding.

Activities may include exhibitions, productions, concerts, literary magazines, publications, touring, arts activities within festivals, industry development, audience development, or community cultural development projects.

If your application is not successful for multi-year support, it will be assessed as a one year application using the information you provide for the first year activity and budget.

Arts Tasmania expects that arts professionals are paid fairly for their work and has developed artist remuneration guidelines for anyone employing or engaging professional artists. Organisations should include artist fees in application budgets.

How much can I apply for?

There are no limits or caps in place for this program.

How will applications be assessed?

Applications will be assessed by a multi-artform peer panel against the criteria of:

  • quality
  • planning
  • benefit
