Applications open for the Cultural Fund

As the philanthropic arm of the Copyright Agency, the Cultural Fund supports big ideas in writing, publishing and visual arts projects from around Australia, every year.

Already this year, we've given $1.3 million to 56 projects. This included funding for the development of 19 new Australian plays and for the inaugural Australian Reading Hour on 14 September.

We believe that big ideas fuel our creative economy and support projects that:

  • Drive innovation in the Australian creative industries,
  • Provide cultural and educational institutions with support, and
  • Develop local and foreign markets for Australian works


If you’ve got a big idea that needs support to grow, APPLY NOW.
