The Arts & Humanities Capacity Building Program sought to strengthen and grow 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. The program was delivered over four years in each state and territory of Australia and co-funded by the Tim Fairfax Family Foundation, James and Diana Ramsay Foundation, Minderoo, Spinifex Trust, Nelson Meers Foundation and the W & A Johnson Family Foundation. This early stage evaluation looks at the program’s impact on Brisbane-based recipient Prying Eye Productions.
