The Australia Council for the Arts is offering six grants of $30,000 in each Arts and Disability Mentoring Initiative round. If you are an individual artist or arts worker with disability, these grants can provide support to extend your arts practice, networks, skills and ambition. 

This program is for individuals with disability undertaking an artistic collaboration involving mentoring. The proposal should lead to a major step forward in the applicant’s arts practice, and build foundations for an enduring career. The purpose is to support collaborations that fuel ambition, embolden ideas and innovation, build networks and capacity, and strengthen future works.

Applications are encouraged from:

  • artists and arts workers with disability seeking to collaborate with a mentor
  • artists and arts workers with disability seeking to be the mentor in a collaboration, including peer to peer mentoring.

Only individuals may apply to this category.

You must be an Australian citizen or an Australian permanent resident.

You must identify as an artist or arts worker with disability.

Applications open late February 2019.

Applications close: 2 April 2019. More Info
