2018 Grants and Awards Announced

With our annual granting program now a fixture on the calendars of Ballarat’s emerging artists, this year has seen a major record broken for the Ballarat Arts Foundation. While our application seasons was open from June to mid July 2018 our organisation saw an amazing array of applications from all genres of the arts. This in itself is not unusual. What was outstanding was the huge collective body of work these applications represented, with total project costs exceeding $300,000.

This year we celebrate the achievements of a writer, two internationally bound performing artisrs, to photographer, several visual artists and a ballerina. The age range of our grantees is large, but the common these as always is that they are all emerging within the genre of their choice and we look forward to sharing their careers with you as they develop.
