Visions of Australia - Round 17

ClosedGrant Closed: 13th of October 2023 - 5:00 pm Value: Up to $2.5 Million Run By: Australian Government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts Further Information: https://www.grants.gov.au/Go/Show?GoUuid=58dae685-f275-4fb2-812c-70c9039a1e67

The Visions of Australia program (the Program) is part of the Australian Government’s Arts and Cultural Development Program which supports participation in, and access to, Australia’s art and culture through developing and supporting cultural expression.

The Program promotes the sharing of a diverse array of Australian arts and cultural material. It therefore responds to all five pillars which shape the National Cultural Policy, Revive. These pillars are First Nations First, A Place for Every Story, Centrality of the Artist, Strong Cultural Infrastructure and Engaging the Audience.

The objectives of the Program are to:

  • increase access for Australian audiences to exhibitions of quality Australian arts and cultural material, with a particular focus on touring to regional and remote Australia
  • encourage partnerships between organisations, particularly collaboration across the collections sector, to form curatorial partnerships and where appropriate, access to mentoring and skills transfer opportunities, and financial partnerships.

Program funding is delivered through two streams:

  • Development: for the costs of planning and producing an exhibition to tour. This includes research and design, but does not include the commission of new artworks.
  • Touring: for the costs to produce the exhibition and the costs to transport, install and dismantle the exhibition as well as deliver public programs.

The Program enables artists and organisations to shape Australia’s cultural landscape, increase cultural diversity, and inspire, educate and entertain audiences across Australia. It 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.
