Launching February 2021
Creative Engine’s Thinking Bigger grant offers opportunities for established creative practitioners, both local and visiting, to propose new and complex ideas to be developed. Geelong Arts Centre is looking to partner with well-developed works that have the potential for robust project planning, marketing and budget/funding strategy. This initiative will be specifically curated to meet a more rigorous set of criteria and detailed budget proposals. Selection criteria will focus on works that offer consideration for audience appeal or, for works of a more challenging nature which offer clear audience development or an accompanying education strategy.
