Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program 2021 – [Call For Proposal]

The Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program (ACDGP) provides support for Australia’s creative industries to embrace, engage and build people-to-people links in the Indo-Pacific and beyond.

The promotion of Australia’s cultural and creative industries internationally acknowledges the economic importance of the creative economy to Australia.

The 2021-22 ACDGP supports the economic and social recovery efforts of Australia’s creative industries to rebound internationally by providing funding for projects that:

  • create a positive and contemporary image of Australia
  • build people-to-people links
  • strengthen engagement in the Indo-Pacific and beyond
  • enhance markets and develop creative export opportunities internationally.

Multi-year funding of between $10,000 and $60,000 for up to three years is available for projects that promote Australia’s cultural and creative industries overseas; establish networks; and support ongoing collaborations and exchange.

Cultural diplomacy plays a vital role in international relations, offering unique opportunities to foster mutual understanding and build relationships. Through cultural diplomacy initiatives, DFAT strengthens Australia’s influence, reputation, reach and relationships overseas.

Cultural diplomacy shows our core values and promotes Australia as an innovative, creative, diverse and tolerant nation; and as an attractive place to live, work, study, and invest.

Applications close 2.00pm (AEDT) 25 August 2021.
