Arts Continuity Grant Batch 7 - notified 6 June 2020 Closing date: 29 May 2020

An Arts Continuity Grant is offered to support a short-term arts project, or the stage of a project, that can be delivered within a changed and evolving environment as a result of COVID-19. Decisions are made weekly, with a batch of applications assessed and recommended each week.

Projects can include the creation and/or presentation of new work. Existing projects submitted to our suspended funds can be reframed and resubmitted. Applications were open from 14 April to 29 May. More about the Arts Continuity Grant

NOTE: We will be drawing on further reserve funds as we have reached the $16 million allocated to the overall Emergency Response Package – we’ll update the sector in the week beginning 8 June.
