RISE Fund program opening soon

Keep an eye out as another round of funding is soon to be released!

$75 million of funding has been announced as a part of the Creative Economy Support Package and will be available to support the arts and entertainment sector. The program targets funding towards sector organisations who are seeking to restart, re-imagine or create new activities.

By providing finance to assist presentation of new or re-shaped cultural and creative activities and events, this program will support employment of artists and workers in the arts and entertainment sector, as well as in connected industries such as hospitality, accommodation, transport and freight. This will all contribute to rebuilding Australia’s economy, as well as enhancing community well-being and access to cultural experiences across Australia, including in outer metropolitan, regional and remote areas.

Applications will open on 1 September 2020 and close on the 31 March 2021 at the latest, subject to allocation of funds.
