ArtStart grants for recent art graduates
Applications for the next batch of ArtStart grants are now open for recent creative art graduates to help fund their new arts business and launch their artistic career. These grants are meant for artists who have graduated from an accredited artist-training scheme within the last three years. Up to $10,000 is available to help their transition from studying to a professional arts career.
Every ArtStart grant is tailored according to the needs of the individual artist who needs to identify the key elements necessary to build their career. This could mean getting someone to help with a business plan, setting up a website, training in writing grant applications, attending industry events, mentorship fees, or a combination of any of these things, for example.
Applications for the first round in 2011 close on 2 March. More information is available on the ArtStart website, including tips from previous ArtStarters.
