Arts South Australia is proudly beating the drum for our home-grown talent on the national stage, with some of the state’s best and brightest artists and arts companies on show at the 2018 Australian Performing Arts Market (APAM) in Brisbane.
Twelve South Australian artists and arts organisations will share in more than $300,000 in state government funding to support career development, community arts engagement and the creation and presentation of new work.
In total six individual artists and six organisations have received $305,022 in funding, the majority awarded through Arts South Australia’s Independent Makers and Presenters (IMPP) Building Pathways program, which assists independent, professional local artists to build their profiles nationally and overseas.
Funding recipients include:
This year the Adelaide Fringe will feature its largest ever number of Aboriginal acts, something we hope will only increase in the future.

The State government body charged with advancing and supporting the Arts and Culture in this State has placed the safety and wellbeing of all those working in the sector at the fore, by making the adoption of a workplace anti-bullying and harassment policy a condition for anyone receiving government funding.
Arts South Australia is taking a proactive leadership approach to this serious issue.
"The safety and wellbeing of our entire sector is of paramount importance," said Arts South Australia Executive Director, Peter Louca.
