The Sustaining Creative Workers initiative seeks to support the continued work of Victoria’s independent creative practitioners who have been impacted by coronavirus (COVID-19) in 2021. This is the second stream of the program, following an initial round of support offered in 2020.

Sustaining Creative Workers will deliver quick-response funding of:

  • Up to $5,000 for individuals, sole traders and freelancers; and,
  • Up to $10,000 for collectives, groups and micro-organisations/businesses (micro organisations/businesses are those that employ less than 5 Full Time Equivalent staff).
  • Plus, up to $2,500 in additional access funding is available for applications from Deaf and Disabled creatives, artists, arts workers, and disability-led organisations/businesses.

The Sustaining Creative Workers program is supported by the Victorian Government through Creative Victoria and administered by an industry advisory group comprising Creative Victoria, Arts Access Victoria, Multicultural Arts Victoria, Music Victoria, NETS Victoria, Regional Arts Victoria, Theatre Network Australia and Writers Victoria.
