The Carstairs Prize aims to support socially engaged art projects that embrace participatory and collaborative experiences, bring participants into active dialogue with the artist(s) in order to involve audiences beyond the art community.

The prize is intended to contribute to artwork production costs to assist the successful applicant(s) to develop and present new work. In recognition of the severe limitations in place due to physical distancing and the challenges this poses, we welcome proposals that consider the digital and virtual space as a valid and essential arena for collaborative artistic endeavour. Proposals may, but are not required to, explore collaborative arts practice in a time of pandemic and physical distancing. To read the Terms and Conditions, view previous winners, and apply, visit our website.

Funding Available: One individual or group will be awarded $3,000 + GST

Important Dates: Applications close 23:59 AEST Sunday 25 October 2020.
