The City of Melbourne is seeking applications for its Quick response Arts Grants 2021 to provide funding support to artists through the flexibility of an application process with a short turnaround time.
These grants assist small to medium arts organisations and individual artists in any art form or practice and at any career stage to create and present activities that will be shared with the public (online or at a venue within the City of Melbourne boundaries) or to support a period of creative development.
The program supports artists to develop or present new work, specific elements of a larger project or to take a project to another level. The quick nature of the grants also enables artists to take advantage of unexpected opportunities that may arise at short notice (such as an opportunity to collaborate, a last minute venue offer or to add a layer of depth to a project).
Assistance of $4000 is available through quick response arts grants.
– Grants are available to artists and small to medium arts organisations across all disciplines and to people from all backgrounds and abilities.
– Support will be considered for online content, the development of new or unpresented work or to successfully deliver a project to the public (either online or at a venue within the City of Melbourne municipality).
To be eligible for a development grant or for a project resulting in an online presentation, applicants must demonstrate a relationship to the City of Melbourne.
There will be two rounds in 2021 with outcomes required within six months of notification.
