About us

Rawcus Hunger

The Ian Potter Cultural Trust's approach to development of the Arts through support of talented individuals is unique in Australia. Since it was established, more than 1,500 artists have been supported by grants totaling over $7 million.

The Trust's main program offers grants of up to $10,000 to assist early career artists of exceptional talent to undertake professional development, usually overseas.

The Cultural Trust funds nationally, and across the spectrum of the Arts from visual arts to performing arts and music to literature, spanning traditional art forms right through to experimental mediums.

In addition to professional development grants for individual artists, the Trust runs a program of major arts commissions which have included sculpture, music (composition) and currently, moving image art.
