Grants are now on offer for programs that are designed to boost and foster arts and disability practice in NSW.
Delineate 2014, an initiative of Accessible Arts in partnership with the Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign, is offering grants of $3000 as part of its small arts grant program that aims to develop a deepening engagement for programs with a focus on sustainable outcomes.
According to Accessible Arts, Delineate is an arts program that seeks to enrich the creative initiatives of the Don’t DIS my ABILITY campaign run by Family and Community Services (FACS) to celebrate International Day of People with Disability (December 3).
It said those encouraged to apply include: disability services coordinating quality arts programs; service providers working with people with disability in the arts; arts organisations providing programs for people with disability; individual artists with disability; and applicants must be a resident of NSW.
“Recipients will receive $3000 towards an arts project and/or program to be developed throughout the Don’t DIS my ABILITY campaign,” Accessible Arts said.
Grants will be available for the following art forms: dance, music, theatre, visual arts, writing, hybrid/interdisciplinary arts, screen arts, multi-media and community arts.
Applications close on Monday June 30 at 4pm and recipients will be notified on Friday, August 1.
The Don't DIS my ABILITY campaign is sponsored by NSW Government, Department of Family and Community Services (FACS).
