  • will be undertaken primarily in one or more regional WA locations
  • will premiere at a regional WA venue or festival.

The new work must be regionally relevant, with the presentation taking place at a regional venue, location or festival event.

The new work may already be in early development at the time of applying; however, this category cannot provide funds for the remount of an existing work or for costs already incurred.

In addition, projects that involve collaborations with, or between, any of the following parties will be highly regarded:

  • regional artists
  • small-to-medium or independent arts organisations or artists

  • national or international artists, arts companies, organisations or festivals.

Playing WA


Funding for the touring of WA produced performing arts shows to regional and remote communities in Western Australia.

What can be applied for

To be eligible for funding through this program, the planned activity must: 

  • be for a performing arts production that is ‘tour ready’ (has been staged publicly and reviewed; or you have a demonstrated track record of regional touring, and your production is yet to be staged. Contact a grants officer if you have any questions)
  • include performances which are paid and ticketed
  • include at least one performance programmed by a professional venue (a venue that regularly programs professional work and has the capacity to receive touring productions) in regional WA
  • be open to the general public
  • be staged in 2 or more regional towns or remote communities in WA.
If your project does not correspond in some way to either category, contact a grants officer for advice before starting an application.

4 components of your application

There are 4 components of a grant application:

  1. core application questions

  3. financial information
  4. support material.

Each plays a significant and distinct role in creating a whole picture about your activity.

Core application questions

Your answers to the core application questions should give assessors an overview of your activity.

Each question has a 1500-character limit. If you need more information on how to prepare your application, please read the application manual.

You can extract a copy of your draft application in Online Grants at any stage to share with others for their feedback.

Please ensure your activity meets the most current COVID-19 health guidelines.

1. What is the activity you are seeking funding for?

Provide an overview of your planned activity. Your overview should identify the artform/s, type of activity, when and where it is taking place, and who is involved.

For development of new work, provide a summary of the new work and key elements involved in its development.

For touring, describe the show that will be toured, including details such as the featured performing artform/s, themes, performers and when and where it was previously staged.

You must include evidence of activity-readiness in your support material. For development activities, you must provide evidence of a venue partnership agreement and creative materials that serve as an example or basis for the new work. For touring activities, you must provide evidence of tour-readiness such as past reviews, videos, marketing and promotional materials or press coverage.

2. Why is your activity relevant to regional audiences?

For development, describe why the themes of the new work are relevant in the context of regional Western Australia and how the work will attract a broader audience.

For touring, provide an overview of when and where the tour will take place and how you identified regional demand for the project. Include information on how regional and remote host communities were given the opportunity to review the show before they agreed to host it.

3. Who will deliver your project?

Who are the key creatives and collaborators and what are their roles? For touring, who will undertake and manage the tour? For development, outline how key personnel will contribute to the development/delivery of the project. Also describe the potential collaborations and partnerships. 

4. What regional employment and professional development will be created through this activity?

Describe any paid work that will be undertaken by regional people in the development and presentation of the work. This can include work undertaken by technical crew, production staff, creatives, and any other regional people whose employment directly relates to the project.

Also describe any opportunities that will be provided to regional people for professional skills development. This can include the delivery of artistic or technical development workshops, work experience placements/internships, and any activity in which there is knowledge exchange with local organisations and practitioners.

Describe how you will encourage participation or involvement from members of the regional community/ies and how you will attract regional audiences to the show.

You must include a marketing plan and community engagement plan in your support material.

Project outputs

You are required to provide relevant project outputs. An output is a specific measurable thing that is generated by your project. This information will be considered as part of your application and provide further clarity about your project for the assessor. The outputs also provide important data for the department for research, analysis and advocacy purposes.

You only need to provide outputs for the categories and items relevant to your project.

If your application is successful, you will be required to report against your planned project outputs in your acquittal report. 

Refer to the application manual for an explanation of the project output questions.

Please contact us if you have any questions.

Financial information

The financial information in your budget helps to demonstrate that all elements of your activity have been considered, thoroughly researched and costed. A good budget also provides confidence for the DLGSC that your activity will be a sound investment for the State of Western Australia.

You should indicate which expenditure items you want the DLGSC to support. List those items in the ‘Additional Notes’ section of the application budget page.

If you are registered for GST you should not include GST in the budget figures. All amounts should be in Australian dollars.

Your funding request is the difference between your expenditure minus your income. To ensure this amount is calculated accurately, seek quotes for all expenditure items (whether or not you intend to include these as support material) and include all costs associated with the activity, even if they are supplied in-kind.

Many activities will include in-kind contributions in the form of offering something for free or at a discount. More information on in-kind expenditure and income as well as an example of how to demonstrate your in-kind support follows this section.

For each expenditure or income item you add to the budget, use the notes area alongside the item to explain how that item relates to the delivery of your activity and how the cost was calculated.


Expenditure items can vary significantly from one activity to another. Any legitimate expense that is eligible may be included in the budget.

Do not duplicate costs in the budget form. For example, if you receive a quote for advertising which includes design, do not add an additional item for design. Simply use ‘advertising’ as the expenditure item and add a note explaining that the cost includes design.

Make sure you check the list for ineligible items.

Eligible expenditure items


Expenses related to the management and administration of the activity. For example, telephone/internet, insurance, postage and stationery. Eligible expenditure items in this category may also include audit costs and accessibility costs (expenditure associated with making your activity accessible to participants or audiences with a disability).

Marketing, promotion and distribution

Costs associated with marketing to your target audience. For example, information, promotion and audience engagement activities, advertising, graphic design, merchandise photography, videography, public relations and production of marketing collateral.

Preparation, development, production and exhibition/presentation

Costs related to the remount, production and delivery of the activity or its deliverables, including the costs of presentation and exhibition. Eligible items may include venue hire, lighting hire, set construction, manufacturing costs, recording fees, rehearsal space hire, props and audio-visual costs.

Salaries, fees and living allowances

Expenditure in this category should include salaries, fees and allowances for all key personnel, with separate components itemised in the budget notes. We support appropriate rates of pay for all people involved in your activity. Refer to the following websites for information on industry standard payment rates:

If these standards do not apply to your activity, then you must outline how reasonable rates have been calculated. For long-term activities, it may be appropriate to pay artists a rate based on a yearly salary for a similar kind of work. If this is the case, you need to clearly explain the rationale for the pay rate in your budget notes.

All rates should be relative to level of experience.

Please note that organisations, such as Media, Entertainment and Arts Alliance, predominantly provide information on minimum base rates for employees engaged on a full-time, part-time or casual basis. Rates for artists and arts workers engaged as contractors will include a loading to cover the costs of being self-employed. Full-time, part-time and casual rates do not factor in these costs and should not be used when engaging contractors.

Travel and freight

Costs associated with transporting people, equipment or goods. Eligible items may include fares (taxi, airplane, bus etc.), tolls, land or air freight, and vehicle hire.


This program does not fund 100% of your activity costs so you must demonstrate at least 20% income, which may include in-kind support, or your application will be ineligible.

Eligible income Items

Earned income

May include ticket sales, product sales, performance fees, royalties, artwork and/or merchandise sales. For performances, this amount should factor in the number of performances, average ticket price and projected venue capacity.

Corporate sponsorship

List any income received through sponsorship from corporate bodies or businesses. Income received through government sponsorship should be included in the relevant government income category. 

Philanthropic donations

May include contributions from fundraising, crowdfunding, donations, gifts and bequests.

Australia Council, other Commonwealth Government, other State Government, local government

All grants and sponsorship being sought from local government, State Government, Commonwealth Government, the Australia Council, and other government sources must be included, whether or not this support has been confirmed. If your application is to be assessed by a peer assessment panel, we will attempt to confirm the status of any pending funding applications directly with the funding body prior to the panel assessment. Do not include department grant funds being requested as part of this application.

Other income

If you are making a cash contribution, or someone is providing cash to the activity, list this item as a cash contribution or similar. Include any other income source that does not fit within any of the above categories and provide enough detail to identify the income source.

In-kind expenditure and income

Some expenses may be offered to you for free or at a discount. This might be borrowed equipment, the use of a rehearsal space, donated or discounted goods or services, volunteers (including you), negotiated discounted fees and allowances. Anything given to your project at no expense to you is considered in-kind.

All in-kind items must be included as a budget item under the in-kind expenditure category. The corresponding recognition of in-kind income is created automatically in your online application, and you do not need to enter any in-kind income budget items. The total in-kind expenditure must always equal the total in-kind income. 

If, for example, you are hiring a venue, which would normally charge $2000, and you have successfully negotiated an $800 (40%) discount, you would include venue hire fee as a budget item under the expenditure category of $1200 and $800 under the in-kind expenditure category. 

Additional notes

This section of the budget provides an opportunity for you to detail any additional information you feel may help to clarify items within your budget. For example, for fees and salaries you can indicate in this section how you calculated your amount.

You should use this section to indicate which expenditure items you want the department to support.


The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) considers any grant payment to be taxable income for the purposes of your annual income tax return. You are encouraged to discuss your tax implications with your tax agent or the ATO prior to applying for a grant.

Registered for Goods and Services Tax

If you are registered for GST, you must show your expenditure items exclusive of the GST component. For example, you have been quoted $550 including GST for lighting hire. In your expenditure budget you would only show lighting hire of $500. If your activity is funded, the department payment will include a 10% GST component to cover those items on which GST is payable.

Not registered for Goods and Services Tax

If you are not registered for GST, you must show your expenditure items inclusive of the GST component. For example, you have been quoted $550 including GST for lighting hire. In your expenditure budget you would show lighting hire of $550. If your activity is funded, the department payment will include the GST component for those items on which GST is payable.

Support material

Support material is essential to allow assessors to fully gauge the value of your activity and your readiness to undertake the activity. The support material you choose should provide further information and evidence to support the project outlined in your application.

Your choice of support material should help to demonstrate the four assessment criteria: quality, reach, good planning and financial responsibility, as well as how your project will meet the objectives of the program. See How will my application be assessed.

How will my application be assessed?

Applications to this funding program are assessed by peer assessment panel(s). A high volume of applications may require multiple peer panels for assessment.

All applications are assessed against 4 criteria:

  1. quality
  2. reach
  3. good planning
  4. financial responsibility.

Each has a subset of dimensions and weightings which can be found below.

More information about the dimensions and definitions, which have been developed by artists and creatives representing their sector, can be found in the application manual. You are not expected to address all dimensions and definitions, only those most relevant to your application.

Your activity must meet at least one of objectives of the category to be successful. Assessors will consider your application against the relevant dimensions and definitions and allocate a weighted score for each of the four criteria.

See the application manual for more information about how your application will be assessed.

Final approval of successful applications depends on available budget and approval by the Minister or delegated authority.


Weighting 20%

Quality refers to the level of artistic and cultural significance of the activity. Quality may be demonstrated by, but not limited to; examples of previous work, sector support, timeliness of the work and a strong history in your area of practice. It may also be demonstrated through the skills and experience of the people involved in the activity, and the alignment of those skills and experience to deliver the project.


Weighting 30%

Reach refers to the level of impact the activity is likely to have. Reach may be demonstrated by including information for; networking opportunities, relevant marketing and promotional strategies, number of participants and the potential increase in audience or markets.

Good planning

Weighting 25%

Good planning refers to the level of consideration which has been given to practically undertaking the activity. Good Planning can be demonstrated by, but not limited to; carefully considered preparation, confirmation of key personnel, a realistic timeline and achievable outcomes, documented research and/or consultation, and a process of evaluation.

Financial responsibility

Weighting 25%

Financial responsibility refers to the sound management of the budget. Financial responsibility can be demonstrated by but is not limited to; efficient use of resources, reasonable expenses and an accurate and comprehensive budget. Other sources of income have been considered and included where appropriate and the activity goes some way towards self-sufficiency.

Acquittal report

If you are successful, you will be required to complete an acquittal report when your activity has finished. An acquittal report details your activity and how you spent the grant. The acquittal report will be available for you to access in Online Grants, via the Edit/View Report button or Reports tab on the Home page, once a copy of your signed funding agreement has been received.

Your acquittal report must be submitted within 90 days of the activity completion date as specified in the funding agreement. You will need to attach relevant documents, images and videos that substantiate the delivery of the activity and that may demonstrate the impact and outcomes achieved. As a rough guide please refer to the Support Material formats and limits as listed above for your acquittal report support materials. Refer back to your activity outcomes for guidance in selecting suitable material.

If possible, please provide your support material in one PDF document (for text and images). Audio and video material to be supplied separately as applicable. 

The report will also include your activity budget and you will be required to enter all the actual figures against each budget item and add any additional items not in the original budget. Variations between budget and actual figures are acceptable; however, you must provide an explanation for large variations in the Notes for that item. As you enter actual figures, the activity profit/loss will be automatically updated and displayed at the top of the Financial Information page.

The funding acquittal report also includes the option to provide feedback to help us to continually review and improve the service we provide.
