Arts Infrastructure Fund (AIF)

The Arts Infrastructure Fund (AIF) is a new limited-life fund which aims to assist Queensland-based arts and cultural organisations in financing minor infrastructure works and upgrades that will strengthen their capacity to deliver arts and cultural services.


The objectives of the AIF are to invest in:

  • Strengthening the capacity and effectiveness of performance, exhibition, collection and creative spaces
  • Increasing access to arts facilities and services for individuals and groups who are disadvantaged.


Up to $50,000 per applicant is available and a maximum of 50% of total eligible project costs.

Arts Queensland funding is to be matched on a minimum 1:1 basis by the applicant through other confirmed funding sources.


This is a limited-life fund, with one round closing for applications at 4pm on Friday 16 March 2018.
