Access2Arts supports Deaf and disabled people in South Australia to get involved in the arts as participants, audiences, artists, arts workers and leaders.

We do that by:

  • Showcasing and celebrating your work
  • Linking you to other arts and disability organisations
  • Delivering a range of creative and professional development projects
  • Sharing events, opportunities and workshops
  • Offering funding advice and auspicing (below).


Funding advice and auspicing

We help artists find sources of funding, provide feedback on grant applications, and can auspice your grant if you’re successful. The word ‘auspicing’ means ‘to support someone’. Some grants can only be given to organisations, not individuals or groups. But if Access2Arts auspices your application, you can still apply. If you’re successful, Access2Arts will manage the funds on your behalf and report to the funding body at the end of your project. You will need to include an auspice fee of 10% of your grant budget in your application.
