Funding is now available for regional artists and community groups for projects that inspire arts and cultural activity in rural, regional and remote areas around the state.

There are two grants available throughout the year in March and August delivered under two main categories.

The Country Arts SA Step Out grants are open to communities and artists to partner with professional artists and arts organisations to create art projects that build capacity for long term benefits and increase professional development
