Grant Background: With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting all of Australia’s arts and cultural sector, the operations and financial stability of arts organisations have been significantly affected.
The RISE Fund is delivered to support artists and organisations affected by COVID-19 through the delivery and presentation of activities across all art forms to audiences across Australia. Projects that target audiences in outer metropolitan, regional and remote areas will also be taken into account, as well as projects that involve tours and use local regional production, services and support acts.
Activities will contribute to the organisation’s financial viability, job creation, and support for Australian artists or performers and their work. They will provide experiences to audiences, and/or be of a nature that is likely to be popular with Australian audiences.
