Festivals Australia will support participation in, and access to, the arts and aims to support partnerships and collaboration across the sector.

The Commonwealth will provide approximately $1.2 million each financial year to support the presentation of arts and cultural activities that will enable community members living in regional or remote Australia to participate in or attend an arts driven experience at a festival, or significant one-off community celebration.

Fund Rounds

There are two funding rounds each year which generally close in March and October each year.
