Playing Australia is open to applications for funding with some adjustments to the guidelines accounting for COVID-19 conditions.
These adjustments take account of:
current extenuating circumstances for producers and presenters, allowing for flexibility within tours
additional costs which may be required for the safe delivery of tours
potential for state border closures and varying conditions between states and regions
ongoing financial implications of COVID-19.
Grants are available to support the net touring and other designated costs associated with tours. There is no limit on the amount that can be requested.
