Interested in $500 to get your event off of the ground?

Apply for a micro-grant for 2021

Like last year, we're giving away a small number of $500 micro-grants to support individuals, artists, and small organisations to run events.

We are specifically interested in events and experiences that influence our shared narrative around how important nature is to most South Australians and that deepen our personal relationship with nature. We encourage events with unlikely partners, in unusual locations, or with plans for memorable engagements.

Last year we funded a 'seed dating' event, an ephemeral art workshop, a future of food event, a nature poetry slam, a bushtucker storytelling event about the lost Warki people, a dance workshop, a limestone carving workshop for kids, an instagram tree-pose and tree-planting campaign and more.

Projects that are new or existing projects intending to expand will be considered.
