2020 Undercover Artist Grants Program

Spanning the art forms of theatre, physical theatre, dance, circus, music, cabaret, new writing and poetry, Undercover Artist Grants Program will offer grants enabling performing artists with disability and/or who are D/deaf to develop skills and create new work.

The work created through this program will be exhibited on a virtual platform at Undercover Artist Virtual Showcase, viewed by industry leaders and peers across Australia in early December 2020.
