Grants and Awards

Are you driven to create?


Access Arts can help you make the first, or next step through one of our grant funding opportunities.


Provided with support and in partnership with other arts organisations, our grants and awards fund the development opportunities, guidance, and exposure artists with disability or disadvantage need to pursue their artistic practice.
