Creative Australia’s Four Year Investment for Organisations (FYIO) program has seen 159 organisations benefit from multi-year investment for 2025–2028. Creative Australia says this is an increase of 45 organisations compared to the previous round (2021-2024).
Nicole Beyer, Executive Director of the peak body Theatre Network Australia (TNA) tells ArtsHub:
‘TNA is excited to see a much needed uplift in the number of organisations funded through Creative Australia multi-year investment. Areas of the sector, such as those creating work with/for/by young people, have been underrepresented in previous rounds, so it is heartening to see the funding supporting those organisations and communities. It is clear that processes and priorities within Creative Australia have shifted, creating space for newer and smaller organisations who have demonstrated national impact.
‘While of course there is much to celebrate, TNA acknowledges that today, and in the previous EOI stage, many more organisations have missed out and will continue to struggle under increased workloads, growing operational costs and precarious conditions.’
The full list of organisations to receive FYIO funding across a range of art forms including theatre, music, dance and visual arts can be found on Creative Australia’s website.
