Orange Regional Arts Foundation New Grant Announcement

Filed : Arts and funding opportunities, Local and industry news .

The Foundation is pleased to announce the new JUMP START ARTS GRANT. Up to $5,000 allocated annually to support the development of local artists working in any artform. 

Jump Start aims to:

  • Enable artist/s from the Orange region to further develop their skills or improve their capacity to build an enduring career in the arts
  • Support people who show potential to access arts skills development opportunities

The Jump Start Program can support a broad range of activities such as skills and professional development, workshops, mentorships, showcases, residencies or projects directly related to your arts skills development.

Jump Start is open to emerging artists in any artform, who reside in the Orange region (Local Government Areas of Orange, Cabonne and Blayney.)  The applicant must be an Australian citizen or have Australian permanent residency. An emerging artist is someone in the early stage of their career. It refers to the stage they are at rather than their age.

The closing date for applications is: Sunday 30 September, 2018.
