City of Melbourne 2014 Annual Arts Grants

Artists, groups and organisations with creative ideas for projects in the City of Melbourne are being encouraged to apply for a City of Melbourne Annual Arts Grant. Applications for the 2014 Arts Grants are open from 6 May – 17 June and new ideas from all art forms are welcome.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the annual arts grants are central to maintaining the quality and diversity of the arts in Melbourne. “The work produced through the annual arts grants are integral to the continual development of Melbourne’s artistic community,” the Lord Mayor said. “From film and visual art, to dance, literature and music events; I am continually impressed with the calibre of arts grants recipients. I encourage people to get online and find out more about how they can be involved in the 2014 program.”

Arts and Culture Portfolio Chair Councillor Rohan Leppert said investment in the arts is central to Melbourne’s vitality and creative richness. “Melbourne’s fantastic arts and culture scene isn’t an accident – it takes commitment and investment. The Annual Arts Program has been an important source of funding for artists and organisations for over 16 years. We welcome new ideas that enliven the city and engage, challenge and excite our residents, workers and visitors.”

There are two funding categories:

The Arts Projects category is open to artists, organisations and community agencies, working in any art form or practice.

The Indigenous Arts category is open to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander artists, organisations and community agencies for arts projects and activities in any art form or practice.

Successful applicants are required to deliver their project in the City of Melbourne municipality within the 2014 calendar year. Funding of up to $20,000 per recipient is available, and all applications are assessed by an external panel and endorsed by Council.
