‘Start-Up’ Grants for Young Artists

‘Start-Up’ Grants for Young Artists, administered by artsACT, are valued at $500. They are designed to be responsive to the needs of young emerging artists and encourage young people to engage with the ACT Arts Fund for the first time.

‘Start-Up’ Grants are designed to assist young artists with an activity that will develop their arts practice. Eligible activities may include promotion costs, the purchase of materials, documentation, and venue and equipment hire costs associated with an arts activity.

To be eligible to apply, individuals must be aged between 18 and 25 years and not have received a grant from artsACT in the past.

Applications open on Monday 31 January and close at 5pm on Friday 25 February 2011.

For more information and an application form call artsACT on (02) 6207 2384 or visit the artsACT website at http://www.arts.act.gov.au/
