Creative Victoria provides direct support to Victoria’s arts sector through a range of funding programs.
Together, these programs are designed to stimulate high quality, diverse arts activity across the state; strengthen Victoria’s reputation as a centre for artistic excellence and creativity; and ensure that all Victorians have opportunities to participate in and enjoy the arts.
Each program has a specific focus.
