Twenty seven creatives have shared in $995,902 through the 2021 round of Creative Victoria's Creators Fund program which supports research, development and experimentation activities that will enable creatives to expand their skills and lay the foundation for career boosting new work.
This year the Sidney Myer Fund partnered with the Victorian Government to boost the program, contributing $100,000. The partnership made the 2021 round the largest to date in terms of both funding and the number of creatives to receive support.
Sidney Myer Fund Chairman Andrew Myer AM said: “Arts and culture are at the heart of what makes Victoria a great place to call home, but the last two years have been a very difficult time for the creatives in those fields. Sidney Myer Fund is delighted to be working with government to help more artists get the financial support they need to make their own vital contribution to our community.”
