All applications to this category must be discussed with the relevant Arts South Australia project officer prior to submission. Unsolicited applications will not be accepted.

Eligible activities could include invitations for showcase performances at national and international trade fairs, such as Bigsound, AWME, and other major international festivals and extraordinary opportunities that have a significant impact on career development.
