Next Level

Each year we welcome more talented young artists to The Ian Potter Cultural Trust community and observe the transformative effect their travel experiences have on their careers. Our community of grantees has now surpassed 1500 artists across all artistic disciplines.

One artist who has definitely taken his practice to the next level is video artist and winner of the second Ian Potter Moving Image Commission (IPMIC) Daniel Crooks who exhibited his work Phantom Ride at ACMI in February 2016.

This year 92 new grantees join the Cultural Trust community. Read about some of these in the full online report.

In this past year, The Ian Potter Cultural Trust has supported 91 emerging artists from an increasing diversity of art forms and an extraordinary array of projects undertaken in countries around the globe.

Ten years ago, the geographical base of applicants was disproportionate with the majority of applications coming from Victoria. Today we see individuals from across Australian applying. 

This year we also ran a survey of past recipients, the results showing that 96 per cent of grantees were still working in the arts. This result shows that the Cultural Trust continues to play a unique and important role in the Australian arts landscape, providing individual artists with 'just the right amount of support at just the right time.'

New Horizons

This year several artists received a grant to pursue interdisciplinary studies. We have noticed a strong trend to cross-platform arts practice in which the lines between disciplines are mixed and blurred to create new genres that don’t fit traditional categories.

A Vision of the Future

If there was any doubt about the value of supporting and encouraging talented emerging artists and helping them to grab key opportunities in their early careers, it is quickly allayed by a glance through the long list of Cultural Trust alumni. The roll of past CT grantees now numbers well over 1000: many are now well-respected talents, some are household names and all have gone on to make significant contributions to the calibre and vivacity of the Australian Arts scene.
