Mobility Funding Guide: Australia

The Mobility Funding Guide: Funding Opportunities for International Cultural Exchange in Asia, Guide to Australia provides an overview of funding available for cultural project to and from Australia. 

In this latest edition for Australia (November 2015), readers can find funding opportunities by country in most artistic and cultural disciplines. The guide lists national resources when available, as well as regional and international sources of funding, be they public or private. There are a total of 41 opportunities listed: 9 opportunities available through national government funding, 17 through regional funding, 5 through private organisations and 3 through other initiatives. Additionally, there are 7 opportunities listed through international sources of funding. 

In addition to the core national and regional funders, such as the Australia Council for the Arts, the guide also explores sector-specific opportunities and private foundations. It also highlights international opportunities that are also open to Australian citizens or residents. 

To make sure that the publication uses reliable sources, only regular opportunities accessible online are listed. This means that there are a number of resources that are not listed: funds for which information is only available offline, funds that are not based on open calls, and ad hoc or short-term funding. Additionally, this guide was last updated in 2015, so there might be some changes.

The guide is an attempt to gather all the resources in one document and is by no means complete. Rather, it is a starting point for research into funding for mobility in the Australian context. You can learn about how to read the mobility funding guides here

Since 2012, the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) and On the Move (OTM) have jointly presented the Mobility Funding Guides for International Cultural Exchange for the 51 countries of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM).
