Up to $30,000 is available from Audience Development Program to support public screenings, festivals or tours that provide opportunities for audiences to see and experience quality screen content and innovative practice.
Audience Development Program
The Audience Development Program supports public screenings, festivals or tours that provide opportunities for audiences to see and experience quality screen content and innovative practice, and one-off or annual events including those in single or multiple venues.
Events and programs that support high-quality activity, engagement and participation with these Priority Areas are of particular importance:
- people living and/or working in regional NSW
- people living and/or working in Western Sydney
- Aboriginal people
- people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) backgrounds
- people with disability
- young people.
Applications should not be for less than $2,000. Funding is generally not offered above $10,000 for a Single Year project, however funding above that amount may be considered for a program of activities or in exceptional circumstances.
Funding for Multi Year funding is uncapped, however grants to the majority of organisations will be in the range of $10,000 – $30,000 per year. An organisation will need to demonstrate an outstanding track record and impact on the NSW screen sector to be considered for the upper amounts.
Organisations applying for funding are expected to secure other sources of income or in-kind support wherever feasible. Income may be derived from sources such as sponsorships, grants or subsidies from other agencies, revenue from ticket sales, fund raising and other activities.
You can apply for support towards public screenings, festivals or tours that provide opportunities for audiences to see and experience quality screen content and innovative practice, for one off events or annual events in single or multiple venues.
Funding for the Audience Development Program is generally open to the following:
- not for profit incorporated bodies
- co-operatives or trusts, local government authorities
- “for profit” organisations may be able to apply for a project. Applications will need to be discussed with Create NSW prior to making an application.
To be eligible for funding, organisations must be legally constituted. Applicants need to provide proof of their legal status.
A consortium or a group of organisations working collaboratively may make applications.
In this case, one eligible organisation must be nominated as the lead organisation. The Funding Agreement will be between Create NSW and the lead organisation.
Applications may be considered from non-NSW based organisations where the applicant can demonstrate that the project occurs in NSW or has significant benefit for NSW residents.
Applications close 20 June 2017.
