For The Ian Potter Foundation, supporting a vibrant and thriving Arts sector is a key focus. Through our Arts program area we aim to help build the calibre and capacity of Australia’s arts organisations and support them to raise the bar of aspiration and achievement in the sector.

The objectives of the Vibrant Arts category are:

  • To support first-rate artistic institutions and organisations in metropolitan and regional Australia which are distinctive in artistic achievement, imagination and innovation in fostering development across a sector or art form.
  • To support such institutions to host artists in high-calibre professional development and/or leadership opportunities of at least 12 months (e.g. fellowships, apprenticeships, mentorships, internships).

Important to know:

  • Speak with the Arts Program Manager before preparing an Expression of Interest (EOI).
  • Applications for this program area are considered once a year by the Board of Governors.
  • In general, the recommended minimum grant amount for institutions and organisations is $100,000 and these are usually considered as multi-year grants.
  • We encourage all organisations to apply regardless of their size; in the case of smaller organisations, the award can be for small amounts over multiple years.
  • Proposals that are collaborative and/or share knowledge with the broader sector are encouraged.
  • The Ian Potter Foundation rarely awards the full amount of any project.  Please ensure that you have alternative providers of funding, and that your application clearly considers any possible grant from the Foundation in this context.
