The Small Schools Fund allows schools with 50 or less students in regional and remote Queensland to apply for funds up to $5,000* per year for curriculum-linked projects (inclusive of facilitator fees, travel and accommodation).
This opportunity allows schools to work collaboratively with an experienced Flying Arts’ artist to plan and deliver a visual arts incursion (workshop/residency) of your selection to collaborate on an arts rich experience for students and the wider school community.
Please provide us with as much information as possible about the proposed project you would like delivered. We encourage applicants to be creative in supporting their proposal, e.g. use of images, video, etc.
Applications will be assessed on alignment with curriculum, engagement, distance from a metropolitan centre, community benefit, creativity of the idea and ongoing impact.
There is no need to tell us the artist you want to work with as we will match you with the best person from our team.
