geek speed dating

Call yourself a geek? Fancy some money to make some digital art, or help other people to discover their inner geek? If you answered yes, the Australia Council's Digital Culture Fund and Geek in Residence program may be just what you're looking for.

The Digital Culture Fund offers up to $40,000 for artists working with innovative technologies in a live context with a strong focus on audience engagement. The Geek in Residence program offers up to $25,000 towards a technically confident artist (or artistically confident technician) to work in an arts organization on a temporary subsidized placement.

To find out more you are invited to a series of special events taking place in major cities around Australia. You will have the chance to hear all about the work the Australia Council for the Arts is doing to support the digital era, find out more about these two funds, meet some of last year’s successful applicants and do some 'geek speed dating'.

Visit for a full schedule of dates and locations. Meetings to discuss individual applications with Fee Plumley, the Digital Program Officer, can be booked via

The Digital Culture Fund deadline is November 22nd, so apply now via! The Geek in Residence call opens imminently, sign up at to be sent the direct link once we're live.

Please share this invitation so that more geeks (and those who need them) can benefit from this opportunity :)
