Australia Council has developed a new grants model which will support a diverse range of artists, artistic practice, organisations and arts activity. The new model will make it easier and simpler to apply for grants.
Area of practice based peer assessment of artistic merit and excellence will remain central to grant decision making.
The new grants model reflects the Council’s commitment to supporting a dynamic arts ecology by investing in excellence across all art forms and throughout artists’ careers.
