“The hard time is now”
A group of Champion Companies in the performing arts led by Theatre Network Australia and facilitated by Creative Partnerships Australia through the Australian Cultural Fund has been actively fundraising to provide emergency financial relief to artists in need. Our goal is for 1000 donors to each contribute $1000, allowing us to support 1000 artists!
Requests for support will be reviewed by an Advisory Committee twice every month. We will strive to notify applicants within the week.
ELIGIBILITY (all must apply):
• An individual artist / production crew / producer who is an independent / freelancer / contractor in the performing arts.
• You have lost income due to COVID-19.
