What we support
Structured professional development and networking opportunities to gain experience, develop networks and learn skills from the world's best. Such as:
- Study tours that have a clear skills development focus
- Private lessons
- Conferences and workshops.
Applications for which the sole opportunity is an exhibition, performance or the making of a recording are ineligible.
The Cultural Trust prioritises the funding of international professional development opportunities. Applicants may seek funding to undertake a development project within Australia if the development opportunity is of high quality and can offer exceptional benefit to an individual's artistic practice.
