OPPORTUNITY: ACT Development Grant in Dance

The Arts & Culture Trust (ACT) and its longstanding partner Nedbank are proud to announce the second of two sets of ACT Development Grants for the 2018 funding cycle. ACT invites professional, creative dance projects, planned for realisation between February 2019 and December 2019, to apply.

Each ACT Development Grant iteration is divided into two sets of grants; one set is disbursed to emerging/mid-level artists and organisations and the other to established artists and organisations. Projects should increase organisational sustainability or skillset and have far-reaching benefits.

To be eligible for the emerging/mid-level ACT Development Grant, organisations must have one or more years’ experience working professionally and experience at managing budgets of less than R50 000. Emerging/mid-level artists must have been working professionally for at least one year. For artists to be considered established, they must have been working professionally for five or more years and have a proven track record of successful projects with budgets exceeding R50 000. For organisations to be considered established, they must have been in operation for three or more years and have a proven track record of successful projects with budgets exceeding R50 000.

Mid-level and emerging artists or organisations are eligible for one of five grants, each worth R30 000. Established artists and organisations are eligible for one of three grants, each worth R80 000. To apply for either set of ACT Development Grants, artists and organisations are invited to complete the online registration form.

Applications open: Tuesday, 11 September 2018
Applications close: Wednesday, 24 October 2018
