Country Arts SA’s Elevate Grant Program supports regional South Australian artists and arts groups to connect with the industry, deepen their practice, build their local creative capacity and develop and present new work to regional audiences. The Elevate Grant Program offers opportunities in all artforms, including a spotlight on digital practice, and will focus on supporting new work by First Nations artists and groups, artists and groups of colour, artists and groups with a disability and LGBTQIA+ artists and groups.

Elevate: Explore offers grants of up to $10,000 for regional artists to develop or explore new skills/ideas in residence in regional South Australia for up to four weeks. This could include First Nations artists spending time on country, business development for artists, attendance at professional development opportunities, artists in residence at a regional arts centre, gallery or other place suitable for residency. There are four Explore grants available.

The Elevate: Explore grant round opens 19 September 2022.
