Submissions Open – Access Arts Achievement Award 2020

It’s that time of year again! Applications for the Access Arts Achievement Award are now open.

The Access Arts Achievement Award provides up to $10,000 in funding for Queensland artists, arts workers and producers with disability. You can be working in any art form, and use the funding to create, develop, present, produce, exhibit, and/or tour your work. This is an incredible opportunity to build on an existing creative work, or develop an entirely new one!

In 2019 our winner was Lauren Watson who used her funding to produce Nerve, an exploration of the complicated nature of being a woman and an artist with disability.

So what are you waiting for! To be in with a chance to win, submit your application before 6 November 2020.
