Arts Tasmania provides financial assistance to individuals and organisations for a defined project or program of activities. Financial assistance is made available through either a grant or a loan.
Grants and loans may be applied for throughout the year through the appropriate funding round. Please check the closing dates for funding rounds carefully as most funding opportunities are only available once per year.
Toolkits are available for each funding round and are an essential part of the applications process. Please ensure you download the toolkit before you apply to check your eligibility, the assessment criteria and planning and budgeting templates.
The process for all grant applications submitted to Arts Tasmania is as follows:
- Your application is submitted to Arts Tasmania and is processed by a Program Officer.
- Your application is reviewed and ranked by a panel of artform specialists.
- The Tasmanian Arts Advisory Board assesses the advice of the panel and makes
recommendations on funding.
- The Minister for the Arts considers the recommendations of the Tasmanian Arts
Advisory Board and provides final approval for funded projects.
Before you start your application please read the application guide section of this website.
