Funder: Federal – Infrastructure
Grant Background: The Arts Sustainability Fund supports the arts and entertainment sector to continue its activities by providing necessary finance to plan a pathway for recovery from the effects of COVID‑19. Funding will support employment and contribute to rebuilding Australia’s economy, as well as enhancing community wellbeing and access to cultural experiences across Australia.
The intended outcomes of the program are:
- significant Commonwealth-funded performing arts and culture organisations remain solvent; and
- Australian communities continue to benefit from the work of significant Commonwealth-funded organisations as the key employers of Australian artists and art workers, leading presenters of high-quality work and as the trainers of Australia’s upcoming performing artists.
