The Artist Fund was set up to support and strengthen artists in developing and presenting works within the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Since its inception in 2015 over $350,000 has been awarded to over 56 artists across a variety of genres and art forms.  

By making a donation to the Artist Fund you can make a big impact into the professional lives of Australian artists and the development and progression of unique and impactful performances.

Receiving an Artist Fund grant makes long lasting impacts into lives of Australian artists. You can find out more about our recipients here


The Artist Fund grant allowed us to be innovative, bold, daring and explore new markets to present out work. Without it, we simply wouldn’t have been able to put on such an extensive Fringe season, nor reach so many people.
