Grants Grants Grants! We got some… 3 in fact!
Updated: Feb 28
We are super excited to announce that we have been successful in a number of grant applications that will allow us to continue some of our existing programs and develop new ones. We would like to extend our immense gratitude to the ACT Government for their support through ArtsACT and to the Federal Government’s National Disability Insurance Agency’s Information, Linkages, and Capacity Building program.
ArtsACT Organisational Capacity Building
As an organisation that relies heavily on project funding, we were extremely excited when ArtsACT announced their grant round for organisational capacity building for non-funded arts organisations. In close consultation with our now president Evelyne Meier, we developed a proposal to assist in developing a philanthropy and fundraising program and were successful in our application. We can’t wait to begin this new journey and hope to gain philanthropic donations and sponsorships that will allow us to grow and expand our programs.
ArtsACT Program Funding
We are over the moon to have been accepted into ArtsACT’s 20-21 program funding round to develop our ACTORVATE program. The program will see Rebus create an ensemble of theatre practitioners interested in expanding their skills in Community Arts and Cultural Development. The ensemble will meet weekly to learn about a range of theatre and cultural development models and put their new skills into practice by developing projects that engage with various communities in Canberra in new and exciting ways. Stay tuned for more information on how to get involved!
We would also like to congratulate Australian Dance Party, and Girls Rock! Canberra for receiving their first round of Program Funding.
Flair - Information, Linkages, and Capacity Building – Individual Capacity Building Program
We know the power of theatre in developing the skills to speak with confidence, to share our ideas with the world and be leaders. This power has been recognised by awarding Rebus Theatre a three-year grant to deliver Flair, a theatre program for people with disability to develop these skills, and produce original, engaging theatre that will challenge audiences along the way. Flair will create an original, devised show every year for three years, with a changing ensemble cast of people with disability. More information soon on how to become involved.
