Arts Tasmania

Live Performance Reactivation Program

The Live Performance Reactivation Program has been designed to support the delivery of new larger-scale professional live performance productions in Tasmania.

Performing arts companies and venues can apply for funding ranging from $25 000 to $200 000 towards the professional costs of productions. This may include artist and performer fees, venue hire, payments for technical staff, set design and construction, equipment and costume hire and licensing costs.

To be eligible for support, events and performances must comprise a majority of Tasmanian artists, arts workers and technical staff.

Applicants may only submit one application but it may cover multiple performances of the same show scheduled to occur between 1 August 2021 and 31 July 2022.

Applications are currently closed. Sign up for Arts Tasmania’s newsletter for funding and program announcements.
