The Seed have announced their Grant Rounds for 2015, which are now open for application.

Established by musician John Butler in 2005, The Seed offers grants annually to bona-fide practicing artists and arts practitioners who are Australian citizens.  The Seed Fund, now in its 11th year continues to support emerging musicians, artists and art workers.

This year’s categories include Professional Management Support, which is aimed at managers who have previously attended the Seed Management Workshop. Up to three opportunities are available and grants of up to $5,000 will be allocated.

Australian performing and recording artists are encouraged to apply for the It’s All About The Song grant, which offers up to $3,500 to three successful applicants.  Well-known music makers Steven Schram and John Castle are just some of the producers who will be involved in the project, following their work with acts such as Vance Joy and San Cisco.

In addition,  Australian emerging managers including self-managed artists can apply for one of 25 spots under the Management Workshop grant, which boasts a total project value of $55,000.  The project is aimed at managers working with artists in their establishment phase.
