Arts Organisations Triennial Funding Program

The City of Gold Coast Arts Organisations Triennial Funding Program (AOTFP) provides three years of organisational funding for arts and cultural organisations. The program invests in organisations to support the development of new work, innovation, artistic excellence and cultural leadership.

Triennially funded organisations are assessed by an independent panel of creative industry professionals across multiple art forms and areas of expertise. The panel ensures that funding is allocated in line with the City’s cultural plans and policies, and the criteria relating to quality, reach, impact and viability.

The funding offered under the AOTFP is designed to meet the objectives of the Culture Strategy 2023.

Under the 2019–21 program, $1.8 million was invested in nine organisations.

The Arts Organisations Triennial Funding Program 2022–25 will open for applications in mid 2021.
