The following information has been provided by the Australia Council:
The next round of the Regional Exhibition Touring Fund (Visions of Australia & Contemporary Touring Initiative) is now open for applications with a deadline of 2nd June, 2014.
We know some of you have already been online and checked out the new criteria and forms, but if you haven’t yet please head to:
What is different?
On the website you’ll see our overall approach has been to simplify and clarify. But one of the big differences to take note of is the:
• new Presenter Confirmation Forms for touring applications
• and the new Presenter EOI Forms for development applications.
These new forms replace the previous Venue Confirmation Form. They are designed to give those presenting your exhibition a chance to add their voice as support to your proposal. We don’t expect Presenters to write lengthy answers, in fact they can even use dot points. They simply need to outline the benefits for their program and community; something we imagine they have already considered when agreeing to be part of the tour.
But, as this is new, if you are finding a delay in receiving forms from a Presenter, please contact Program staff prior to the round closing date to discuss.
Why the changes?
The criteria and forms for this round have been updated as part of our enhancement plans developed from sector consultation. If you missed our Information Sessions and want to know more what solutions these changes offer, please check out the online resources at:
