Join the Conversation
How much can I apply for?
You can apply for up to $10,000 for project activity and up to $3000 for professional development.
What if my application contains elements of both professional development and project activity?
Your proposal can include elements of project activity and professional development, in which case you can apply for up to $10,000. If your application is purely for professional development, you can apply for up to $3000.
If you wish to apply for a more substantial professional development proposal, we recommend that you consider applying for a Carclew Fellowship ($3000 to $12000). Click here for more information.
Professional development proposals for amounts less than $3000 can also be applied for through Carclew’s QuickstART Microloan program. 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 and Development 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 and Development 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 committee.
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 and Development 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.
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 committee 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 and Development Grant recipients are eligible to apply for other funding and loan opportunities through Carclew.

Grant recipient profile | Alex De Porteous, Cabaret Performist
Funded | $3,435 in round 1, 2016
Project | Applied for funding to develop and produce a cabaret show based around the impact of social media on young people.
Professional development outcome | The opportunity provided by a Project and Development Grant placed De Porteous in a position to tour nationally and internationally. Being apart of the Adelaide Fringe has also given her the invaluable space to extend her professional networks and therefore assist with her aspirations of continuing touring and producing more shows.
Funding outcome | After many months of exposure to other professional musicians and intensive rehearsals De Porteous made her first performance as a young emerging Cabaret performer and her first solo Cabaret show at the 2016 Adelaide Fringe. “I believe the whole project was a success and I gained experience in both the production of shows, promotion of events and gained a greater understanding of how to work with professionals in the music and entertainment industry,” said De Porteous.
Grant recipient profile | Andrew Baird, Classical Flute Musician
Funded | $3,768 in round 2, 2016
Project | Applied for funding to attend mentorships and summer courses as part of the British Isles Music Festival (UK) and the Summer Music Academy Sinaia (Romania)
Professional development outcome | The opportunity provided by a Project and Development Grant has been an exceptional opportunity for Baird who says he has seen 'leaps and bounds' in terms of his personal playing and confidence in performing. The Grant has also enabled Baird to represent South Australia and create connections with an international network of musicians from over twenty-five countries.
Funding outcome | Since the event, Baird has been approached by one of his mentors Mr Paul Edmund Davies who has indicated that he would be more then happy to take him on as one of his students. In addition to this, the Grant has placed Baird in an excellent position to apply for a Masters at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, something he has also long been aspiring to do.
Grant recipient profile | Nelson Hedditch, Hip Hop Artist
Funded | $1,900 in round 2, 2015
Project | Sought funding to gain mentorship and residency in the Bronx, New York City with A.G and Ray West, two established Hip Hop artists with over 30 years of experience.
Professional development outcome | Carclew’s Project and Development Grant greatly assisted Hedditch to improve his depth in song writing and recording practices. ' I became more confiident in the recording process and to observe how an artist who has been recording for years uses their time in a studio wisely'.
Funding outcome | Since the residency, Hedditch has had doors opened to him in a completely new market and to many professional networks internationally. In the later half of 2015, Hedditch negotiated with the label to see him come more often and record and perform within the U.S and European markets, something he knew would be an invaluable opportunity.
Grant recipient profile | Anna Dowling, Visual Artist
Funded | $2,695 in round 2, 2015
Project | Applied for funding to develop and exhibit a body of artwork and a companion document that explores the theme of imprisonment through an Aboriginal lens.
Professional development outcome | The opportunity provided by a Project and Development Grant placed Dowling in a position to develop her existing skills and to further her experience as an artist by exploring a challenging and important topic by connecting with her community to bring a broad range of perspectives into her artwork. 'I feel that I challenged myself, and learnt new skills during the process. I also strengthened relationships with community, artists and galleries'.
Funding outcome | Since finishing the artwork, she has been approached by Country Arts SA to have her drawings tour regionl galleries around the state until 2018. She has also been able to connect with two other South Australian Galleries who want to exhibit her work on a longer term basis.
