Flame.Arts Access – Leg Up Grants

The Flame.Arts Access Program aims to create pathways to practice, career development and employment opportunities for artists who are often under-represented.  Embedding a strategic and targeted focus to ensure tailored engagement by people with disability, young people and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists and creative practitioners.

Flame.Arts Access - Leg Up Grants offer small grants of up to $1000 for individual People with Disability, Young People and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People to develop projects of an arts and cultural nature within our region, or further afield (or for individuals or organisations developing projects that specifically target/benefit one or more of the above groups).

This is a quick response grant: applicants shall be informed of the outcome of their application within 14 days. Funds can be used for individual professional development opportunities, project costs or materials.
