It’s not everyday you read two freakn great blogs about grants and funding within a state and federal context. Because I’m the game of grants and funding this stuff is really important to me. It’s also important to you if you want to crack the code of the funding landscape.
Let’s take a look at the state perspective, ‘Fear and Loathing in Language’ written by Producer, Katherine Quigley, asks us to take a closer look at the use of language in policy. So how does the Arts Queensland ‘Super Star’ Fund rate? My comment, if we look at social theory to critique the state and it’s governing discourse, this one is a kicker.
The second blog ‘Queensland You’re A Babe!’ by Dave Sleswick of Motherboard Productions, uncovers the serious lack of Queensland based artists and projects funded by The Australia Council For The Arts. Excellent info, and a real issue that has been bothering me for a while. Thumbs up Dave for writing this. I will add, I have been funded recently for a Community Arts In Education Placement in Jakarta, Indonesia from Community Partnerships, Australia Council For The Arts, bringing the number up to a ‘hand full’?
