Meet this year's recipients of the 'Creators Fund'.

Eighteen creative individuals and groups have been named the state’s ‘Creators’ for 2020, as the third round of recipients receiving funding via the Victorian Government’s ground-breaking Creators Fund.

A key initiative of the Victorian Government’s $115m Creative State strategy, the Creators Fund will enable recipients to work intensively to research and develop their creative ideas over a three to six month period.

The Creators Fund paves the way for independent creatives to take their practice and their careers to the next level by providing them with one of the most important and scarce resources - time.

Meet the latest Creators Fund Recipients, selected by expert panels from more than 150 applications.
