Arts Infrastructure Fund (AIF)

The Arts Infrastructure Fund (AIF) assisted Queensland-based arts and cultural organisations in financing minor infrastructure works and upgrades to strengthen their capacity to deliver arts and cultural services.


The objectives of the AIF were 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.


Funding for the program was $250,000 for one round. All available funding has been expended.

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

Arts Queensland funding was matched on a 1:1 basis by applicants through other confirmed funding sources.


Please note the Arts Infrastructure Fund was a limited life fund and is closed for new applicants.
