Cultivate is a new professional development fund for Australian artists with disability, offered through Art Access Australia.
Cultivate will provide seed funding to artists who want to further develop their professional artistic practice with the aim of being better placed to pursue a professional artistic career and to compete for funding in general arts funding programs.
Grants of up to $8000 are available for the costs associated with developing a professional practice as an artist. This could include specific skills or professional development opportunities including mentoring.
