Festivals Australia seeks to celebrate the intrinsic capacity of the arts to engage, inspire and make meaning for all Australians, while supporting the celebration of place and promoting a sense of community identity.

The Festivals Australia objectives are to:

  • provide access to a diverse range of engaging, innovative arts projects that grow audiences at festivals across regional and remote Australia;
  • support partnerships and collaboration across the arts sector; and
  • encourage community participation in arts projects at regional and remote festivals.

To achieve these objectives, Festivals Australia offers funding to support individual art projects that
allow community members living in regional or remote Australia to participate in or appreciate an
arts-driven experience at a:

  • festival – which is defined by Festivals Australia as a regularly presented program of events (for example annually or biennially) that is open to the public and provides an opportunity to gather and celebrate
  • significant one-off community celebration – which is defined by Festivals Australia as a schedule of events that is open to the public and is focused on an anniversary or launch of great significance to the community. For example, a special celebration of the town or the area’s culture and history, a significant anniversary of a major local event, or the opening of a major new community resource could be the basis for an eligible significant one-off community celebration

Festivals Australia delivers two open competitive funding rounds each year, opening in February
and September.
