Small Regional Presenters

Creative Victoria lo res August 2015

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.

Regional Arts Victoria's Connecting Places program is intended to work alongside Creative Victoria’s Small Regional Presenters. If the grant application is successful the presenter can use the funds to assist with the difference in cost between the per-performance fee and their expected income, technical costs (excluding capital investment) and additional marketing costs such as advertising and printing.

Regional Arts Victoria staff are able to offer some assistance to presenters in preparing an application for Small Regional Presenters. In the event that a presenter submits and application for Small Regional Presenters and is not successful they should speak with Regional Arts Victoria to discuss further options.

Applications for funding require your 2019 touring program be booked to apply. 
Round Opens: 14 February 2019 via the Creative Victoria Grants Portal
Round Closes: 5pm, 14 March 2019  for shows taking place from 1 July 2019 onwards.

Please contact Rosie Dwyer, Connecting Places Manager at Regional Arts Victoria or Fiona Beckwith at Creative Victoria for assistance in understanding Small Regional Presenters.
