The Flame.Arts Access Program aims to create pathways to practice, career development and employment opportunities for artists who are often under-represented; embedding a strategic and targeted focus to ensure tailored engagement by people with disability, young people and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and creative practitioners.
Flame.Arts Access – Leg Up Grants offer small grants of up to $1000 for Young People and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People and up to $1500 for people with disability to develop projects of an arts and cultural nature within their region, or further afield (or for individuals and organisations developing projects that specifically benefit one or more of the above groups).
This is an out-of-round grant: applications must be submitted at least two weeks (10 business days) prior to the activity start date and applicants will be notified of funding decisions within two to four weeks after complete applications are received. Funds can be used for individual professional development opportunities, project costs or materials.
