The Organisations Investment Program (OIP) offers multi-year operational funding to small, medium and large organisations in the arts and cultural sector.
The current Organisations Investment Program round is supporting 87 organisations across the state, representing a wide range of artforms and organisation types. Organisations are funded either on a financial or calendar year basis.
To align with the development of Victoria’s next four-year creative industries strategy, the current Organisations Investment funding cycle has been extended by a year.
This will enable Creative Victoria to undertake focused research to improve its multi-year funding opportunities and better meet the needs of the sector.
The next multi-year round will be held in the second half of 2021. Further information will be available later this year.
The Organisations Investment Program invests in the creativity, capability and continuity of organisations that make a valuable contribution to Victoria's creative and cultural ecosystem, supporting independent creative practice, business ingenuity and innovation.
