Applications are now open for the Australian Government’s $2 million Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund Public Grants Program.
The Minister for the Arts, Senator the Hon George Brandis QC and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Centenary of ANZAC, Senator the Hon Michael Ronaldson said that the creative projects funded through this program will commemorate the Centenary of the First World War and the service and sacrifice of Australians in all war efforts.
“The Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund Public Grants Program will enhance our understanding of the Anzac legacy by assisting artists in the development, production, presentation, exhibition or performance of arts and culture projects,” Senator Brandis said.
Senator Ronaldson said the grants will enable the use of creativity by Australian communities, cultural institutions and individuals to explore the Anzac Centenary in a range of ways.
“Artists are encouraged to explore any aspect of Australia’s military history including Australian involvement in any war or through peacekeeping efforts,” Senator Ronaldson said.
Grants of up to $100,000 for national, state and territory cultural institutions and $50,000 for artists, organisations and community groups are available for a wide range of arts and culture projects.
