Today Creative Partnerships Australia announced ACF Boost – a funding program designed to enable Australia’s independent artists, small groups and arts organisations to leverage private sector support through a matched funding ‘boost’.

The program offers dollar-for-dollar matched funding of up to $5,000 for projects that are developed, produced or toured within Australia that raise funds through the Australian Cultural Fund platform.

Open to independent artists and arts organisations nationwide, the program will preference fundraising projects to those residing, practicing in or touring work to bushfire or drought affected regions.

Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher, said “ACF Boost provides an added funding opportunity for Australian artists and arts organisations, alongside funding from the Australian Government. This program facilitated by Creative Partnerships Australia fosters philanthropy and social investment in the arts and I encourage our arts sector to take advantage of this occasion by submitting an application.”
