Arts South Australia Announces COVID-19 Arts Grants

The COVID-19 Arts Grants support art making, creative development and professional development across all art forms.

Arts South Australia has reconfigured its available grant funds and developed a series of practical measures to support the sector, and assist artists and organisations to respond to immediate pressures and the inevitable disruptions occurring. An amount of $1.5 million will be allocated in the coming weeks.

The COVID-19 Arts Grants support art making, creative development and professional development across all art forms. It will be a condition of funding that independent artists and smaller organisations will be primary financial beneficiaries. The intent of these grants aims to:

  • provide employment for independent artists, and contribute to the sustainability of the small-to-medium sector in uncertain times
  • enable the development of new work in new ways
  • support the exploration of true cross-sector collaboration as resources and knowledge are shared for mutual benefit
  • provide funding to the sector for other areas of greatest need

Outcomes may be:

  • bringing work to audiences in new ways and via different platforms and experiences
  • creative development to have new work ready to go at a later time
  • outcomes that cannot be anticipated at this time
  • support for immediate day-to-day needs

Grants will be provided through simplified application and assessment processes. Acquittal processes will be modified.
