Australian Council for the Arts are directing approximately $5M to the Resilience Fund to provide immediate relief to the
Australian arts sector.

The 2020 Resilience Fund is designed to provide emergency relief to support the livelihoods, practice and operations of Australian artists, groups and organisations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This funding can be combined with relief offered by other arts funding agencies, government departments, support services and philanthropy.

We have developed this program using input and ideas from the arts sector. We gathered this input through various sector roundtables and discussions, feedback and ideas provided to us by artists and organisations we fund and people who have participated in our sector development programs.

There are three streams you can apply for.
