Financial Assistance

Thanks to Arts Queensland, a small pool of financial assistance has been made available for Presenters and independent Queensland based producers and artists to attend the Showcase in Mackay, and for presenters to attend the Roadcase events in Cairns, Winton and Toowoomba.

Who Can Apply?

Volunteer delegates from community organisations may apply for the Presenters travel subsidy. Please contact arTour if you have any barriers to get to Showcase or Roadcase and we will see how we can assist.

Producers and artists
Independent Queensland based producers and artists.  Travel subsidy will not be offered to representatives from organisations or festivals funded by Arts Queensland through the Organisations Fund or the Festival Fund. Please note the travel subsidy has now been exhausted for producers and artists, however there is still travel subsidy available to presenters.

What Is Covered?

Travel subsidy may include flights or petrol or ground transport and one nights accommodation. The level of assistance provided will be determined by:

  • distance travelled
  • benefit to the individual / organisation
  • benefit to the community (for Presenter travel subsidy)

How Will The Travel Subsidy Be Awarded?

  • Assistance is available to one delegate per producing company.
