This grant supports the creation and presentation of new work across all art forms by individual artists and groups through a staged funding commitment over three years. It recognises the benefits that an extended development process can offer some arts projects.
The grant will support all stages of development and presentation, including creative and project development, research, making of work and presentation through creative development and final showings, exhibitions or premieres.
The project should lead to a major presentation of the work in South Australia. Projects which incorporate or create potential for national and international exposure are encouraged. Touring regionally, nationally and internationally is supported.
Final outcomes can be independently produced or can occur within arts and non-arts festivals and organisations.
To assist you with your application, read the Arts and Culture Grants Program General Guidelines before you apply.
