The Australia Council’s million dollar commitment to artists with disability

Australia Council Chief Executive Officer Tony Grybowski announced the Australia Council will commit one-million dollars of funding to support the development Deaf and disabled artists, groups and organisations.

Mr Grybowski said the decision to extend the dedicated arts and disability funding was made after a successful pilot was run earlier this year.

“The pilot program confirmed there is a rich pool of talent in this area, and that is why we have extended the program for three years.”

The Australia Council’s million dollar investment in arts and disability over 2015-2017 will provide development grants of up to $25,000 and project grants of up to $50,000 for individuals and groups.”

Mr Grybowski said the dedicated arts and disability funding was identified as a strategic initiative under the organisations new five-year strategic plan and that it would play an important role in the realisation of its goals.

“The new grants program begins in January 2015 with the first round of applications closing in March,” Mr Grybowski said.
