Arts OutWest supports or partners on occassional projects across the region as well as funding occassional projects through small grants.
Our support may be as the auspicing organisation (usually for an unincorporated group, individual artists or others unable to directly apply for funding); building a collaboration and leading the funding application; or managing funds and other admin elements of the project. We also formally partner on projects where our expertise is used. Sometimes we support a project with additional funds. The exact set up and relationship of the auspice or partnership varies from project to project.
All of these projects have arisen out of ongoing conversations and relationships built with the local partners and align with out strategic plan.
To start a conversation about how we might support your project idea contact our executive director Tracey Callinan (details below). See our auspicing policy for more details.
