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

Supporting documentation

Depending on your circumstances, you will need to provide different types of evidence and material to support your scholarship application. Applications without supporting documents will not be considered.

Please visit Supporting documentation for more information.

You will need:

  • 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 statement of benefit of the project to the location and people involved (Australia or overseas)
    • an outline of the medium which will be used and what the outcome will be.
  • a summary risk assessment* of the project

* 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.
