Project and Development Grants

Each year Carclew provides project and development funding through two rounds of grants to assist emerging artists, aged 26 and under, to develop creative projects with tangible outcomes and pursue career development. Project and Development grants can also be used toward projects by and/or for children and/or young people or non-profit organisations.

Responding to industry consultation with the small to medium youth arts sector in South Australia, Carclew’s Project and Development Grant program now has funding streams for individuals and organisations, effective from the September 2016 round.

Applications are now open for: 

  • activity occurring between January and June 2017 (Individuals)
  • across 2017 (Organisations).

Project and Development Grants support opportunities for:

  • Professional development in artistic career building
  • Exploration of new artforms and exposure to emerging methods
  • Access to cultural heritage
  • Creation of original new work
  • Participation in workshops, masterclasses and summer schools
  • Children and/or young people to create art
  • Professional entry points for young artists
  • Young artists who are making brave, exciting new art
  • Empowering young artists with the means to secure mentorships
  • Established artists to work alongside emerging artists, sharing influences, inspirations, methods and core practice
  • The active participation and exhibition of children’s and young people’s art and culture in community-focused events
  • Promoting excellence in youth arts activity and delivery
  • Making the arts more accessible to children and young people
  • Organisations to create artistic skills development programs and mentor schemes that offer unique opportunities to young people.
