Organisations and individual artists can now apply for two consecutive years of fixed funding from the Biennial Arts and Cultural funding streams Creative Yarra and Engage Yarra in 2020–2021.

The grants are designed to provide security and reduce administration costs so that we can enable creative activity to be developed over a two year period, support our creative organisations to build greater capacity and to deliver the best outcomes in our City.

Organisations that meet the eligibility criteria can apply for up to $30,000 per annum, while individual practitioners that meet the eligibility criteria can apply for up to $15,000 per annum. 

The round is now open and closes on 1 April with decisions expected in June. The complete guidelines are now available via the link below.
