Carclew’s Funding Programs
Carclew’s funding programs have supported some of South Australia’s most talented independent artists for over 30 years. Fellowships support self-designed, bespoke programs of professional development eg. summer schools, mentorships or residencies, and Project & Development grants support the creation of original new work.
In addition to our grants programs, Carclew staff provide one-on-one coaching to support young artists to develop and articulate their projects, build project management skills and extend their industry networks.
Over recent years, we have seen a steep increase in need and demand for our grants programs, with the average success rate for young artists reducing from 1 in 4 to an average of 1 in 6. In every round we’re seeing several projects classified as “unfunded excellence” unable to be supported. This has been exacerbated by the ongoing impacts of COVID-19 with incomes diminishing, livelihoods imperilled, and careers stalled.
