Travel Assistance Grants available to assist Queensland regional, rural and remote artists, arts practitioners and volunteers to attend Artlands Victoria 2018.
Celebrating twenty years in 2018, Artlands is the biennial event that shines a national spotlight on Australia’s regional arts. Artlands Victoria 2018 will be a multi-art, cross industry and inter-generational event that provides regional connections. It aims to combine a curated program of works in progress, explorations and commissioned projects alongside an engaged speakers program.
Individual grants of up to $1500 are available to contribute to the cost of travel and/or accommodation to attend. Successful applicants will also have the opportunity to access full conference tickets at the Early Bird price of $660 (including GST).
The selection process will reflect priorities such as inclusion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, young practitioners and practitioners experiencing disability; ensuring cultural and geographic diversity; supporting those who lack the financial means to attend; supporting those who are geographically disadvantaged to attend; supporting the attendance of confirmed presenters; and the professional impact of attendance for the applicant.
Flying Arts Alliance Executive Officer, Kerryanne Farrer said “We are thrilled to be able to assist Queensland artists and volunteers to attend this national gathering of regional practitioners, to network, share experiences and knowledge, and come away inspired with new ideas and perspectives for their local creative communities.”
