Arts Industry Commissions - Expressions of Interest

The purpose of the Arts Industry Commissions (AIC) Program is to provide support to professionals working in the arts, cultural and heritage sectors who have been impacted adversely by COVID-19.

Importantly, this includes supporting our local arts industry professionals to continue to create art in all its forms, which we recognise as fundamental to both the viability of the arts and the broader community cultural sectors, city life, the cultural economy, health and cultural identity.

The AIC Program will specifically seek to support projects aligned with one or more of the following five key areas:

  1. Community Health
  2. Urban Design
  3. Marketing and Tourism
  4. Cultural Heritage
  5. Public Experiences

Individuals, sole traders, organisations and venues in the arts and creative industries will be eligible to apply. 

The AIC program will offer up to 15 individual commissions of up to $20,000 each, for projects to be completed before 30 June 2021.

All activities must comply with the latest health advice and government restrictions, as detailed on the following websites:
