Arts Foundation 2023 Springboard Nominations Open

Arts Foundation 2023 Springboard Nominations Open

The Arts Foundation are seeking nominations for their year-long funding and mentorship packages in the 2023 Springboard programme.

The eight selected artists will receive $15k cash plus their very own partner in crime – a mentor paired from the Arts Foundation alumni of Laureates, Icons, New Generation, residency or Fellowship recipients.

They are seeking applicants ready to take their artistic practice to the next level, where the programme will have a significant impact on their career trajectory by giving them the boost needed to launch into a dedicated career as an artist. 

Nominations can only be made by someone else, so it is literally up to you, to stretch back the rubber band and ping forward the names of the next eight. Nominations close November 23 and you can do it here.

Selection criteria.

  • The award must have major impact on the artist to carry out working as an artist for a year.
  • The artist could be in their final year of formal education ready to develop a practice after completion, or have developed a practice independent of any formal teaching institution.
  • They will show potential to develop their careers either as independent artists or within a creative community.
  • The artist needs to show commitment and intent for a career.
