The Australia Council’s Digital Culture Fund: calling all geeks!

Call yourself a geek? Fancy some money to make some digital art or help other people to discover their inner geek?

If you answered yes to any of the above, the Australia Council’s Digital Culture Fund and Geek in Residence program may be just what you’re looking for.

The Digital Culture Fund offers up to $40,000 for artists working with innovative technologies in a live context with a strong focus on audience engagement. The Geek in Residence program offers up to $25,000 towards a technically confident artist (or artistically confident technician) to work in an arts organisation on a temporary subsidised placement.
