Closes 13 February 2024. Apply for a grant of $7,500 – nine for Australian composers, two for Aotearoa New Zealand.
Since 2016, the grants have funded the composition and creation of new works.
Australian and New Zealand art music composers are invited to apply for a $7,500 (AUD) Art Music Fund grant to help them make new musical works a reality. Eleven grants will be allocated to nine Australian and two New Zealand composers, respectively.
The per recipient funding of $7,500 is available for the creation of commissioned work that is innovative, displays professional compositional craft and represents a benchmark of excellence in its field. The intention is to support composers to create works with a long artistic and performance life – whether it is presented in a concert hall, via live stream, filmed, as a recording, set to choreography or other formats.
