Ian Potter Foundation: Cultural Trust Grants 2017

Ian Potter Cultural Trust grants have been established to assist early career artists of exceptional talent to undertake professional development, usually overseas.

Well-researched overseas travel projects that demonstrate thorough planning, careful budgeting and offer the time and scope to gain maximum benefit from international experience will be considered.

The Trust primarily provides support for structured professional development and networking opportunities overseas such as:

  • Residencies or study tours which have a clear skills development focus
  • Mentoring or private lessons
  • Internships, workshops and conferences
  • Postgraduate study with a focus on professional development and artistic practice

The Trust may also consider supporting:

  • The purchase of non-standard musical instruments or equipment
  • Costs of film-making for final year or post-grad film students
  • Professional development opportunities within Australia where no equivalent opportunities exist overseas
