stART Grant Program
The impacts of COVID-19 have been far-reaching and deeply felt throughout Queensland’s creative sector. Recognising these impacts, and particularly the adverse consequences for independent creatives and artsworkers, Arts Queensland presents its $500,000 stART Grant Program. The stART Grant Program has been established by Arts Queensland to support Queensland independent creative practitioners including artists, artist collaborators, producers, designers, technicians, freelance and other arts workers impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Eligible creative practitioners can apply for $3000 to support ideation, preparation, planning and collaboration activities focussed on future creative opportunities during COVID recovery phase.
Disbursed and awarded by RASN’s regional Delivery Partners, as well as QMusic, eligible creative practitioners are invited to apply for a $3,000 grant to undertake creative development, manage projects, purchase equipment and otherwise get creating again.
