Capacity Building Stream
This program distributed $1.53 million over four years (2015 – 2018) across all states and territories in co-funded rounds with the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation (QLD and NT), the James and Diana Ramsay Foundation (SA), the Minderoo Foundation, the Spinifex Trust (WA), Nelson Meers Foundation and the W & A Johnson Family Foundation (NSW and ACT).
This program supported the independent arts and cultural sector in Australia by granting money to ensembles, collectives, groups and organisations that are highly connected within their sector, and producing excellent work.
A pilot evaluation of the program was undertaken and is available to download here.
The Arts and Humanities Committee of the Sidney Myer Fund is presently reviewing its grantmaking activities in line with the newly refreshed FY19-23 Strategic Plan.
