RAF Quick Response Grant
The Regional Arts Fund (RAF) Quick Response Grant assists regional artists, arts organisations and communities to take up professional or skills development or small project opportunities that would otherwise be limited by the timing of other funding programs.
This fund is only open to applicants from regional and remote Western Australia.
The Regional Arts Fund is an Australian Government initiative supporting the arts in regional and remote Australia.
Funding is available throughout the year and can cover any reasonable expenses, such as artists’ fees, conference registrations, materials, and/or travel and accommodation costs. Applications are due at least 10 business days prior to the project start date.
Creative initiatives with and/or by artists in communities in response to COVID-19 will also be supported.
- Individual – up to $1,500.
Supporting regional artists and arts workers for professional or skills development opportunities.
- Community – up to $3,000.
Supporting regional organisations for small-scale arts and/or skills development initiatives. Organisations must be not-for-profit and incorporated.
The Quick Response Grant is intended to respond to unique arts opportunities that present themselves at the last minute and could not be planned for. Opportunities that have been pre-planned by the applicant or have involved an application process may not be accepted.
