Over 500 artists have been supported through this initiative.
Daniel Clarke, Creative Producer of Theatre Works said:
"This type of artist suppport program was one of the first of its kind in Australia and we are particularly excited to be able to include a cash contribution this year. Although it is modest we look forward to hearing from artists how this contribution will assist in the development of the project. We are deliberately calling for proposals earlier this year so that selected artists have a greater chance of applying for other funding to realise their projects. This program wouldn't be possible without the support of Arts Victoria, The Australia Council for The Arts and our program sponsors including Vianceous Wines, Novotel, Claypots and Viva Flora"
