ArtStart application deadline: October 26
Grants for recent creative arts graduates
The first round of applications for Australia Council for the Arts' new grants program for recent creative arts graduates is closing on Monday 26 October. Designed to provide financial assistance to help emerging artists establish a professional arts practise or gain employment as an artist, ArtStart grants of up to $10,000 can fund services, resources and activities that help graduate artists to build an income-generating career in the arts practise they have studied.
You are eligible to apply if you have graduated from accredited artist training in the last 3 years or if you will graduate prior to the start date for each round. An artist can receive only one ArtStart grant in their career.
If you are not going to make this initial deadline there is another round of ArtStart grants closing on March 8, 2010 for projects starting in June of that year.
For further information, or to apply, visit the Australia Council ArtStart page (http://www.australiacouncil.gov.au/grants/grants/artstart6).
