Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program

Australian Cultural Diplomacy

Australian Cultural DiplomacyThe Australian Cultural Diplomacy Grants Program (ACDGP) supports the delivery of high-quality public diplomacy initiatives which promote our economic, artistic, and cultural assets to an international audience. These initiatives strengthen Australia’s reputation as an innovative, creative nation and foster collaborative people-to-people links internationally, particularly in the four priority regions (Asia; South Pacific; America’s and Western Europe; and the Middle East and Africa).

Grant applications for a maximum of $60,000 per year for up to three years will be considered. However it is anticipated that most grants will be between $40,000 and $60,000 per year, depending on the scope of the grant activity and its complexity.

Eligible applicants include Australian businesses or companies, Not-for-Profit organisations, charities, Local Government Bodies, State Government Bodies, Commonwealth Entities, Statutory Authorities, and Australian Citizens/permanent residents.

Previous grantees from 2017 can be found HERE and include travelling exhibitions, an Art Summit, OzAsia Festival, Art and Sound Exhibitions and Music Trade Missions.

The program is administered by the Australian Government’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
