Recipients of this year’s Arts Organisations Program funding will benefit from more than $20 million across four years – supporting the development and presentation of work in theatre, visual art, dance and literature, including cross disciplinary, experimental and community-based arts practice.

For the first time, multi-year organisations will be funded for a four-year period, up from the previous three, with 23 organisations, including Tutti Arts (pictured), to receive multi-year funding for the period 2023-2026.

Organisations will be able to also leverage their state government funding as part of expressions of interest for the Australia Council’s Four Year Investment for Organisations, which close in February 2023.

Five organisations will be funded through a new category, Program Support, which has been enabled by the government’s election commitment grants boost, and has provided an entry point for organisations not previously funded through the Arts Organisations Program.

Applications for funding were assessed by a panel of representatives from the South Australian arts and culture sector against published criteria, with the panel expertise including art form practice, arts management/leadership, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander arts and culture, disability arts and community cultural development.
