General Feedback
Creative Communities applicants proposed a diverse range of projects, activities, locations and events across
the State and across various art form practices. A wide spread of communities from the Torres Strait in the
north to Toowoomba and Brisbane in the South East were represented by the projects. Notably, four
applications were received for projects based on the Gold Coast and two of these were successful.
The funded projects featured: collaborative partnerships and strong community cultural development practice;
a social enterprise project for textile artists and craftspeople from refugee and migrant communities; a project
to facilitate development and exhibition of artwork from the Gold Coast culturally and linguistically diverse
community; a documentary about inspiring arts and cultural leaders from the Gold Coast; a cultural exchange
opportunity between the local Indigenous community and African cultures; a web-based project to promote the
work of regional artists; a holiday program to provide activities for young people to celebrate their cultural
heritage and a community theatre project that will enliven creative spaces and engage the local community
and schools.
The total request for funding is less than the August 2010 round. However, the total of successful grants
represents an increase of approximately 28% from the previous round.
There are opportunities to increase the quality and success of Creative Communities applications by:
       demonstrating diversified funding for projects using both arts and non-arts partnerships
       articulating clear ideas, supported by strong evidence, and illustrating depth in active community
        consultation, engagement, inclusiveness and opportunities for audiences and communities to
        participate in projects
       evidence of engagement, collaboration and/or partnerships with professional and emerging artists and
        arts workers
       articulating clearly how projects represent new and innovative developments and opportunities that can
        benefit the artform, the community, audiences and participants.
Overall, applicants supported in this round will deliver a diverse range of quality and professional artistic works
and outcomes that will contribute to the ongoing growth, innovation, engagement, access and vitality of
Queensland’s Creative Communities sector.

General Feedback
The April 2011 Development and Presentation Grant (DPG) round was particularly competitive for theatre and
writing with 32 applications received. A notable number of applications focused on projects for Children and
Young people and this is reflected in four of the nine recommended applications having outcomes for this
demographic. The applications were of a high standard overall with a good mix of professional and emerging
practitioners applying.


Future applicants are recommended to keep in mind a few of these tips:
       Have a clear plan and direction for your project. How will it happen? Where is it going in the future? If
        you mention something in your application form, make sure it is reflected in your budget and backed up
        where possible with support material. Consistency in your application will assist assessors to
        understand your project.
       Describe in detail the audience for your project. Is there demand for this work? Be as specific as
        possible about this and in your marketing plan explain how you will reach this audience.
       Look at a variety of ways to raise money for your project. This adds support to the activities you are
        undertaking and increases the viability of the project and likelihood that it will succeed.
       When writing your application, read the selection criteria carefully, and answer them directly. Cutting
        and pasting or repeating the same comments implies that applicants have not understood the criteria.
       If you have trouble understanding the Guidelines or application form, you are encouraged to call Arts
        Queensland and speak to an Arts Development Officer.

General Feedback
In the April 2011 round of Development and Presentation Grants, Arts Queensland received a diverse range of
applications from the visual arts sector. While some of these applications contained elements of cross-artform
collaboration, there was a significant lack of applications from both the craft and design artform areas. In future
rounds of Development and Presentation Grants, Arts Queensland would welcome applicants from the craft
and design sectors.

The 11 recommended projects display high levels of artistic merit, provide strong public outcomes and benefits
to the sector. Applications recommended were well prepared and provided clear responses to the selection

criteria as well as demonstrated understanding of the project alignment with goals outlined in the Queensland
Arts and Cultural Sector Plan 2010-2013.

The diverse range of projects supported include professional and emerging artists; individuals, groups and
organisations; strong benefits for regional artists and communities; national and international exposure of
Queensland artists; and development of high quality exhibitions.

For future funding rounds, applicants are encouraged to:
      demonstrate high quality and innovative visual art, craft and design
      develop projects that demonstrate strong community outcomes including opportunities to engage with
       and participate in the arts
      develop projects that focus on the development and presentation of work in the craft or design artform
       areas
      read the Development and Presentation Grant Program Guidelines and Queensland Arts & Cultural
       Sector Plan 2010 - 2013, and contact Arts Queensland if any further assistance is required or discuss
       your application
      develop projects that demonstrate strong alignment to the Sector Plan
      submit well-prepared applications including clear responses to the selection criteria. Ensure that all
       requirements are fulfilled and all appropriate support material is provided i.e. visual support material of
       examples of previous/current work for a visual arts application.
