We see the next four years as an opportunity for ambitious programming that positions designers and craftspeople as creative problem-solvers during a challenging and critical time for Australia and the world.
The Australia Council for the Arts has a new program in response to the coronavirus pandemic. A $5 million fund has been established this financial year as an early response initiative. The grants open for applications on Thursday and we encourage all small organisations, artists, makers and designers to apply.
An emergency meeting was convened by the National Association of the Visual Arts with sector leaders, including ADC’s CEO Lisa Cahill, to discuss the impact on the Australian cultural sector of the coronavirus pandemic.
