Artist Grants

“To be an artist is to believe in life”  - Henry Moore

If an artist believes in life … then we believe in artists, and commit to supporting them to be the best that they can be.  The Adelaide Fringe Artist Fund has been created to enable projects to be realised in the Fringe program. We encourage bold ideas to take shape, and support all forms of expression which enrich our festival offerings.  

A transparent applicant process ensures that these funds are accessible for a large cross section of artists and companies.  Projects that either include diverse artists, and/or are accessible to diverse communities and audiences are viewed favourably.  We support applications from artists or groups that identify as; Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander and First Nations, LGBTIQA+, Disability and Multi-Cultural.
