Artists’ Benevolent Fund – Grants available
Wed June 30
The renewed Artists’ Benevolent Fund hopes to provide modest but useful one-off financial assistance to Australian visual artists in crisis as a result of fire, flood, storm, serious illness, major accident, declared state or national emergencies, or some other unexpected catastrophic experience.
The Fund may receive requests from:
- Artists whose studios and/or entire bodies of work have been destroyed (e.g. as the result of fire, flood, storm, earthquake)
- Artists who have suffered a major injury in their studio
- Artists suffering illnesses that impact on their ability to maintain their artistic practice
- Artists severely impacted in their practice by a declared state or national emergency, such as losing a critical work opportunity as the result of an event or activity cancelled because of COVID-19.
This fund is not intended to support project costs such as artist fees, materials, equipment etc.
Funding Available: One-off payment of $2,000.
