We’re excited to announce it’s that time of year again! Applications for the Access Arts Achievement Award are now open.
Each year, the Access Arts Achievement Award provides up to $10,000 in funding for Queensland artists, arts workers and producers with disability working in any art form to create, develop, present, produce, exhibit, and tour their work. This is a fantastic opportunity to extend the life of an existing work, or create a new one!
