On Monday 17 November 20146 the Australia Council for the Arts in partnership with Accessible Arts and Arts + Disability NSW held a Information session for:
*Artists who work with Deaf people

Director of Community Partnerships Lenine Bourke outlined the Council’s new strategic direction and the changes to the grants program, effective January 2015.
Australia Council has developed a new grants model which will support a diverse range of artists, artistic practice, organisations and arts activity. The new model will make it easier and simpler to apply for grants.
The new grants model reflects the Council’s commitment to supporting a dynamic arts ecology by investing in excellence across all art forms and throughout artists’ careers.
