Cultural Visions Grant – Applications Open

Cultural Visions Grant – Applications Open

Supporting an RMIT student to realise an artistic project that explores the exchange of culture in Australia.

RMIT Culture is thrilled to announce applications are open for the $3,000 Cultural Visions Grant.

This grant supports an RMIT student who wishes to make an artistic piece that explores the dynamics and exchange of culture within Australia – past, present and/or future. The Cultural Visions Grant recognises the diversity of voices in Australia and proposed creative works should highlight diversity and encourage your peers’ awareness of different cultures.

RMIT Culture unites the university’s public cultural spaces, creative programs and art, film and design collections, providing opportunities to engage creatively, as well as supporting RMIT’s learning and teaching activities, and disseminating its research.

To be eligible for the grant, applicants need to be currently enrolled at RMIT in standard semester 1, 2021; able to demonstrate a lived experience of cultural diversity; be available to attend an interview if shortlisted; and be able and committed to produce the project within the year of receiving the award.

To apply, submit an application package that consists of:

  • a sample of your work;
  • a project proposal, no more than three pages, which includes a description of the proposed project and the reason for choosing the proposed project;
  • a summary risk assessment* of the project;
  • a statement of benefit of the project to the location and people involved (Australia or overseas);
  • and an outline of the medium which will be used and what the outcome will be.

Applications close 11:59PM, Sunday 11 April 2021.

* Haven’t completed a risk assessment before?
It is essential to conduct a risk assessment in order to identify associated hazards or risks and put in place appropriate controls to mitigate or reduce the risks.

The risk assessment will inform the planning of your project and help decide what resources, assistance and equipment will be required. Management of risk should follow this four-step process:

  • Identifying any potential hazards (risks) associated with undertaking the project
  • Assessing the likelihood and consequences of the risks
  • Controlling the risks by putting in place measures that will either reduce the likelihood of their occurance, or establishing an acceptable process should you face such a hazard
  • Monitoring and reviewing the effectiveness of the risk control measures and improving them as required.
