RISE Guidelines Released by Minister Paul Fletcher

  |   News

Minster Paul Fletcher has released the guidelines for the Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand (RISE) Fund and COVID-19 Arts Sustainability Fund (Sustainability Fund). You can find a media release here, and full information on the guidelines here.

The new fund, which is part of the Government’s $250 million JobMaker plan for the creative economy, will provide seed funding to eligible arts organisations, companies and promoters to fund new events, activities and productions that require significant capital investment.

Applications for grants under these two funds will open from 31 August 2020 and applications can be made through until 31 May 2021 (5:00pm AEST). Applications will be assessed on a rolling basis by the Office for the Arts and the Australia Council, with strategic advice from the Creative Economy Taskforce informing final decisions by the Minister.
