The Morrison Government is investing an extra $5 million to support performing arts touring in regional and remote communities as they rebound from the effects of COVID-19.

The Playing Australia Regional Recovery Investment 2021, through the Australia Council, will provide extra funding for performing arts organisations that have already been awarded grants under previous rounds of the Playing Australia Program and were heavily disrupted by the pandemic. The additional funding will support the viability of their regional and remote touring projects.
