    Small Regional Presenters provides funding for regional communities to program and present shows in their area. It also supports skills development and capacity building by encouraging presenters to develop long term plans and audience development strategies.

    Update: In line with the Victoria Government’s Creative State 2025 strategy, work is currently underway to develop programs that best meet the needs of Victoria’s independent creative sector.

    Upcoming programs will continue to include funding streams for:

    • First Peoples applicants
    • Deaf and disabled applicants
    • Independent creative professionals, collectives, micro and small businesses and organisations.

    More details will be confirmed later in 2021.
