The coronavirus pandemic is a health crisis, however for many Victorians, including in the creative industries, it’s an economic crisis as well.

All levels of government have responded with a range of economic support packages and initiatives to help Victorians who are facing financial stress. This includes dedicated programs to support the creative industries as well as broader measures that may assist creative businesses, organisations and individuals.

The Business Victoria hotline (13 22 15) has been set up to support businesses, including not-for-profits and sole traders, to navigate and access the Federal and Victorian Government business support programs.
