The Folk Federation Grant – “Making a Song and Dance About It”
The Folk Federation is delighted to offer a grant of up to $500, and is inviting individuals and groups to apply before 9th July 2023.
Applications are open to Tasmanian resident folk musicians, songwriters, dancers, singers, poets, luthiers, organisers of folk events or folk artists. The money could be used for someone to attend a particular event, to bring someone here, to buy resources or equipment, to produce a CD, to produce “protest” or historical songs, in the folk tradition, and present them in concert, or something equally appropriate which would benefit the Tasmanian folk community.
Applications should include;
- A bit about you/your group, what you do now, have done in the past and/or aspire to do in the future.
- Your current involvement in the Tasmanian folk community.
- The proposal.
- A timeline.
- A budget, including all costs and funding sources for the project, not just those sought from the FFT.
- An explanation of the focus of the project.
- On whose behalf the money is sought (personal or for a group).
- How the use of the money would benefit the Tasmanian folk community.
- How the use of this money would enhance yours or your group’s skills.
- The form of feedback or resource which would be given back to the folk community after the completion of the project (for example, a letter to the FFT Committee, a Drumbeat article, a presentation or talk, a written paper, a booklet).
- The event/project is to take place in 2023-2024 and to be completed by 30th June, 2024.
- The deadline for applications is 9th July, 2023.
Please email applications to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9th July 2023.
Please note that the FFT Committee will consider all proposals at its July meeting and that the decision of the Committee will be final.
