What if my application contains elements of professional development?
Your proposal can include elements of professional development as part of a project or standalone professional development eg. participation in workshops, mentorships, internships, residencies etc
You can apply for up to $3,000 for professional development (if professional development is part of your project you can allocate up to $3000 or your overall budget to this activity)
If you wish to apply for a more substantial professional development proposal, we recommend that you consider applying for a Carclew Fellowship (up to $10,000). Click here for more information.
Do I have to be under 26yrs of age to apply for funding?
Individuals applying for funding need to be 26yrs or under at the time of application.
If your project involves a group of young artists, at least 60% need to be aged 26 or under.
The age limit does not apply to organisation applicants, however children and/or young people do need to be the prime beneficiaries of the project proposal and genuinely involved in concept development, planning and delivery.
When will I know if I’ve been successful in receiving a Project Grant?
It is expected that applicants will receive notification of outcomes within 12 weeks of the application deadline (early June for the March round and early December for the September round each year).
Can I apply for a Project Grant if I haven’t undertaken formal arts training?
Yes. There are many examples of successful artists who have never received formal training. It is, however, important that you articulate an established commitment to development as an artist in your application.
Who assesses my application?
Applications are assessed by a panel of independent arts practitioners and the panel is chaired by a member of the Carclew Board.
What is a support letter?
Support letters are sought by applicants from individuals and/or organisations to endorse their application. Support letters should do one or more of the following:
Please note: Support letters which do not specifically reference the proposal are of limited value to the panel.
The online application refers to general and artistic support material. What is the difference?
General support material refers to any document or attachment in your application that is not specifically artistic in content. General support material may include a CV or professional bio, proof of invitation/participation, links to information about the proposed activity, quotes to support your budget, mentor statements and letters of support.
Artistic support material is, in essence, the artistic evidence that supports your proposal. It should be good quality and clearly demonstrate your artistic practice. Artistic support material may include file links, images, video footage, show-reels, manuscripts etc.
What does good quality support material mean?
Good quality support material means submitting clear audio and/or visuals which support your proposal. It is advisable to invest in professionally produced photography and show reels as these can strengthen your application.
Are there any specific artistic support material requirements?
Artistic support material could contain one or more of the following, depending on your proposal:
Why should I consult with Carclew before submitting my application?
Consults give applicants the opportunity to discuss and receive feedback on their proposal. Discussing your proposal can highlight any areas that might need additional clarification or information.
Can my referee also write me a letter of support?
It is beneficial to provide a range of endorsements in your application however you can provide a letter of support from a referee. References and letters of support should come from specialist practitioners in the relevant field.
Why is it important to address the assessment criteria?
The assessment panel considers all applications against the assessment criteria. It is essential that your application addresses the assessment criteria in order to be competitive.
What is ‘in-kind’ support?
In-kind support is a contribution in the form of goods or services (not money) eg. a professional photographer who documents your work for an exhibition catalogue without charging you. In-kind contributions are listed in the income and expenditure columns of your budget at the purchase value of the good or service. In-kind contributions are a great way to show other sources of income in your application budget.
Do I need to provide quotes for expenditure lines in the budget?
Provide quotes for any substantial elements to be funded by Carclew in your proposal eg. flight/travel costs, course costs etc.
For smaller items you can reference the source of information in your notes to budget eg. meal allowance based on MEAA awards.
Why can’t I make a profit?
Project funding is not designed to support projects that are, or could be seen as, commercial ventures.
The grant is to ensure that the project can go ahead. If you expect to make money from the project (like fundraising, ticket sales etc.) then you must show in your budget that all money you plan to collect/earn/receive will be spent entirely on the project. If you expect to have a significant amount of money left over, then your argument for financial assistance will be substantially weakened.
Please note: Being paid for your work (receiving a fee or wage) is different to making a profit. Carclew strongly supports the payment of artists.
Can I submit more than one application?
Yes. Every application will be considered equally against the assessment criteria. Please note that submitting more than one application does not improve your chances of success.
If you are planning to submit more than one application in the same round, it would be a good idea to explain the need/want for both projects to occur simultaneously and how you can achieve both projects within the six-month period for which the funding is allocated.
If I do get the grant can I apply again in the next round?
As long as you meet the criteria and eligibility of the given round you can apply as many times as you want – whether you have or have not been successful on previous occasions.
Can I apply to Arts South Australia for funding assistance for the same project?
Generally, no but in some instances it is possible. You must first discuss your project with Carclew’s Funding Program Coordinator and staff at Arts South Australia to check if your project is eligible to do this. Staff at both agencies are there to assist you to interpret the eligibility criteria and it is important to seek their advice. Be sure to not waste your time writing an application only to find out that it is not eligible later.
Can I apply for a grant for a project which I have been previously unsuccessful?
Yes. The assessment panel considers each application comprehensively and provides detailed feedback. It is important to seek this feedback from Carclew’s Funding Program Coordinator as it will assist you to improve your application for submission in following rounds.
If my application is successful, am I able to apply for other Carclew funds?
Project Grant recipients are eligible to apply for other funding opportunities through Carclew.
