Accomplished Brisbane-based cabaret artist Karen Lee Roberts has been awarded the Access Arts Achievement Award for 2021. Karen will use the $10,000 grant to produce a new collaborative work Sex and Other Philosophies.
The Access Arts Achievement Award provides up to $10,000 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!
Projects may take place between: 1 January and 31 December 2023
Applications will be assessed by a professional panel who will be looking out for innovative, viable projects with artistic and/or cultural merit, which will provide opportunity for professional development.
Information for Access Arts Achievement Award 2022 Applications will be available June 2022.
The Access Arts Achievement Award is proudly sponsored by CPL – Choice, Passion, Life.
