COUNTRY ARTS SA | Grants for regional artists

Regional artists and organisations who are looking to develop their arts practice, or those who are motivated to stimulate their communities through innovative arts projects are encouraged to apply for funding through Country Arts SA.

Country Arts SA CEO Steve Saffell said: “If you have a project in mind that has cultural, economic or social benefits for your community, don’t miss this opportunity to get it funded and off the ground. There are also grants available for those seeking artistic professional development.”

Country Arts SA administers two funding rounds in March and August of each year which is delivered under three main categories.

Step Out grants are for collaborative arts projects that encourage community engagement, build cultural activity and increase professional development and employment opportunities.

Step Up grants for small cultural projects or professional development opportunities, such as mentorships. 

The Skills Development grants program can help provide skills and project development opportunities.
