The Regional Arts Fund is an ongoing program that provides approximately $3.6 million per year to support artists and communities in regional and remote areas. The Regional Arts Fund is part of the Australian Government’s Arts and Cultural Development Program that supports participation in, and access to, Australia’s arts and culture through developing and supporting cultural expression.
The Regional Arts Fund is managed by Regional Arts Australia on behalf of the Australian Government and administrated by Flying Arts in Queensland.
Quick Response Grants are intended to assist regional artists, arts organisations and communities to take up professional or skills development or small project opportunities.
The Project Grants stream supports applications which benefit the community, increase access and participation, and/or provide direct benefits to artists/arts workers.
This is a once-off $5 million targeted measure announced by the Australian Government to increase tourism visitation in regional, rural and remote communities across Australia by providing financial support for arts and cultural activity.
