MEDIA RELEASE - Catalyst – Australian Arts and Culture Fund supports

2 May 2016

Minister for the Arts Mitch Fifield has announced $10 million for more than 70 projects through the Catalyst – Australian Arts and Culture Fund.

The diverse projects funded across Australia reflect the breadth and vitality of Australia’s arts and cultural sector.

The  projects include single and multi-year activities across the visual arts, screen based art, music, digital arts, dance and physical theatre, performing arts, cross-disciplinary art forms, community arts as well as arts support and development projects.

Catalyst funding for these projects will expand the range of opportunities for Australian and international audiences to engage with innovative new works and contribute to much-needed infrastructure upgrades.

Successful projects include:

·         Development of a new work, ‘Elegance’, by Restless Dance Company which explores body image and disability;

·         The Central Australian Aboriginal Women’s Choir first national tour; and

·         Development of a new theatre work, ‘The Library’, based on objects from the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

 

Catalyst funding is available for projects across the Australian arts and cultural sector. More than 80 per cent of the projects announced today are by small-to-medium arts organisations, with half of the activity occurring in regional and remote communities.

Catalyst is open to applications at all times. For more information or to apply, visit the Ministry for the Arts website, www.arts.gov.au/catalyst or call 1800 590 577.
