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.
