The Cultural Trust is committed to encouraging excellence and supporting a vibrant, world-class arts scene in Australia.
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.
Funding & Duration
The Cultural Trust offers grants up to $10,000
