Write Up


Nexus Arts is delighted to announce our new arts grant writing support service: WRITE UP: August 2020 – February 2021

Nexus Arts is delighted to announce that we are currently offering a funding application support service to artists from culturally diverse and Indigenous backgrounds, to help you apply for available Australian arts grants.

If you are a South Australian artist from a culturally diverse or Indigenous background who would like one-on-one support to develop, prepare, and submit an arts funding application, we can help. Call or email us to make a time to meet with one of our senior staff for individual support via email, phone, or in person. We will help you plan, prepare, and submit a funding application to one of many available funding programs, such as those from the Australia Council for the Arts, Arts South Australia, Carclew, and the Music Development Office.

We can help with:

  • Budgets, and financial planning and viability
  • Project planning and timelines
  • Identifying partners and services relevant to your project
  • Addressing application criteria through your submission
  • Selecting and crafting the most relevant and strongest support material

All you need is your project idea, and a rough timeline of when you would like it to happen. Bring these to us, and we’ll work with you to flesh out your idea, craft your project, and take you through all the steps to submission.

Email us at [email protected] or call us on 8212 4276 to make a time to visit. If you wish to chat in person, you are welcome to drop in to our office between 10am-4pm, Tuesday to Friday, but please understand that we may not be able to meet with you immediately if you do drop in. We ask that if you can call or email, please do one of these to make a meeting time.

If English is not your first language, we will work with you to negotiate this. Please get in touch however you can.
