CuriousWorks is pleased to announce that we are one of the 159 organisations that have secured Four Year Funding from Creative Australia (formerly known as Australia Council for the Arts). 

Securing multi-year funding is a great relief. 2023 has been a year of great transition, and multi-year funding means that we will have the stability to sustainably continue our work. It means that we can start implementing our plans for future programs and visioning that will allow us to grow and respond to the needs of the communities we serve. We are a small organisation , but we know the impact of the work we do. We’re grateful to have that impact recognised by Creative Australia.

Arts funding is incredibly important.  This year, Creative Australia states that they funded 45 more organisations than the previous round (2020 – 2024), a figure that builds from the previous round where they only funded 128 organisations(2016 – 2020). Just as we share in the joy of the other organisations that received funding, we also share in the heartbreak of those who were unsuccessful. We hope to see many more of the incredible, worthy arts organisations receive the stability and funding they deserve in the years to come.
