Extension Round 1: Unlocking Capacity grant

A group of independent producers sitting in chairs, talking and listening to one another.

Theatre Network Australia acknowledges the profound impact that the COVID-19 situation is having on our independent producer colleagues, particularly as many of you work in an international context.

We are hearing about the stress and anxiety this situation is causing many of you, who are losing significant amounts of work and income. We also want to acknowledge how heartbreaking it is to have to cancel shows you have worked very hard to bring to life.

In order to provide some reprieve, we will be extending the deadline for Round 1 of the Unlocking Capacity grant to 5pm AEST on Thursday 02 April. 

We hope that a 2-week extension will provide applicants with additional time to reshape their applications as well as to deal with immediate and urgent matters arising, whether personal or professional in nature.

For all enquiries relating to the content of applications, please email the VIPI Program Producer at Theatre Network Australia, Rani Pramesti at to organise for a video / phone meeting on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays.

For any technical questions related to accessing the Creative Victoria Grants Portal to submit your application, please contact Sasha Leong, Arts Officer, Creative Victoria on 03 8683 3140 or 1800 134 894 (toll free country Victoria only) or by email at

Finally, we are thinking of all of you with care and wish you the very best of luck with your applications.
