$100,000 OF FUNDING FOR THE ARTS
APPLY FOR A GRANT
2023 grant applications are now closed
We back courageous and talented West Australian artists and arts organisations to realise ambitious and unique projects that benefit our local community.
Our high impact grants of $100,000 are designed to provide transformational opportunities for the many talented artists and arts organisations in WA.
A MODEL OF COLLECTIVE GIVING
How it works
Local supporters generously donate funds to raise $100,000 grants for Western Australian arts projects.
Applications open and eligible West Australian artists and arts organisations submit a short application that outlines their project concept, impact and cost.
All applications are reviewed by a Grant Assessment Panel made up of donors and industry experts.
Shortlisted applicants are invited to submit a detailed application.
Around six finalists will be chosen to present their projects at an exciting awards evening where our donor community will vote for their favourite project.
Votes are tallied on the night and then the highest scoring project (or projects) are awarded a $100,000 grant to make it a reality.
