Are you a regional artist? You could be granted up to $15,000 from the Regional Arts Fund thanks to the good old Australian Government.

Recognising how important cultural development is in regional and remote Australia, the funding is geared towards activities that will have long-term cultural, economic and social benefits for individuals and communities.

There are two funding rounds per year with the first round applications closing on Tuesday 15th March. Artists can also apply for Regional Arts Fund Quick Response Grants at any time throughout the year.

The Regional Arts Fund is managed in Victoria by Regional Arts Victoria, and you can see a full list of previously successful projects here.
