The Creative Development Fund is an exciting new initiative for Darwin Festival to support the development of new work by Northern Territory artists. Artists can apply for between $5,000 and $20,000 to support the creation of new work, creative development of existing work, or seeding of new ideas.
We’re looking for ideas and projects that are fresh, innovative and timely. Projects that support the professional development of Northern Territory artists, explore new ways of working and are collaborative.
Our ambition is to support artists to develop and produce high quality work for eventual presentation in Darwin Festival. This funding is not for the presentation of work, and presentation in Darwin Festival is not a guaranteed outcome of successful applications.
Funded activities will need to take place between February – October 2022, unless otherwise agreed.
The Creative Development Fund has been made possible through the generous support of our donors and a $10,000 contribution by Power and Water.
Applications for the Creative Development Fund closed on 31 January 2022.
