Australia Council Grants Information
Here is where to find the dance grants from the Australia Council. The Dance board would like to encourage all applicants to make their applications clear and concise. Please use straightforward and clear language - it does not need to be in an academic style. It is also useful to structure the application by using each question as a header. A number of applicants are failing to respond to all of the questions. These questions are designed to tease out your response to each criterion your application is assessed by, so it is important to respond to each of them.
Care should be taken when filling in the budget. All applicants are encouraged to double check the figures before submitting the application. Your application must present a break even budget where your income and expenditure balance with the inclusion of the grant you are applying for.
Many applicants are using the media form more successfully to strengthen the link between the application and visual material. The quality of moving image support material is very important. Applicants are able to make a direct address to the board through this material if they choose to and may also use title cards between clips if there are a number of works. Moving image material will only be accepted by vimeo link for future rounds. DVDs will no longer be accepted.
If you have any questions about applying to the Projects category please contact: Program Officer, Dance, Phone 02 9215 9179
