The Cultural Trust is committed to encouraging excellence and supporting a vibrant, world-class arts scene in Australia. The Cultural Trust offers grants up to $10,000 to assist talented emerging and early career artists to take up professional development opportunities, usually overseas.
We support applicants who can demonstrate both initiative and exceptional talent, together with an ability to convert their ambitions to reality. In particular, we are looking for well-researched and planned projects that make the most of the time spent overseas.
The Trust primarily provides support for structured professional development and networking opportunities overseas such as:
- Study tours which have a clear skills development focus
- Private lessons
- Conferences and festivals.
The Trust may also consider supporting postgraduate study with a focus on professional development and artistic practice where no equivalent exists in Australia.
Grants are open now and are due on Tuesday 21st May
