Audience Development Fund

The Audience Development Fund (ADF) offers public galleries in NSW assistance in targeting and developing new audiences. It encourages galleries to create innovative public programs that engage artists and the community. The fund is designed to support galleries to develop and trial new models for engaging audiences that will increase immediate and future attendance, access and participation.

Funds can be used for costs that support the development and implementation of public or educational programs, provide seed funding to trial new models for public engagement and/or build new partnerships for audience development. Examples of past programs supported include 1000 Words – Arts and Literacy program for schools at Northern Rivers Community Gallery, Argo Pacifico Kids Club at The Lock-up, Newcastle; Art Walks, a guided video tour of public art developed by Goulburn Regional Art Gallery; Bathurst Regional Art Gallery’s Youth Advocates program and Blacktown Arts’ The Poster Centre workshops.

Amount available: up to $10,000 for each grant (no minimum)

Closing date: Monday 2 August 2021, 5.00pm
