The Australian Council for the Arts have just opened applications for the 21st Century Stories ‘Tell It Like It Is” grant, funding 10 projects for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, arts organisations or community organisations to tell new stories.
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Board’s 21st Century Stories is a three-year funding initiative that will support 10 projects for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, arts organisations or community organisations to tell new stories.
You grant encourages applicants to pitch an idea that is powerful, provocative and personal painful…a story from the first decade of the 21st century. Choose an event and tell it like it is!
The grant invites applications for artistic works that express reactions and outcomes to the way society has transformed in the first decade of the 21st century by highlighting an event from each year of the decade. These 10 new works will undergo further development and presentation in partnership with respective arts industry organisations and institutions.
Projects may be in any artform or combination of artforms. Examples include theatre productions of new work, writing for publication, song writing for recording or performance, or the creation of new works of art for exhibition.
Applications close Monday 16 January 2012
