Applications are only accepted from Organisations or Community Groups, not individuals.
Community Partner Program applications are valid for one financial year (July 1 through to June 30 inclusive).
Organisations and Community Groups must apply to be a part of the Community Partner Program (henceforth referred to as a “Community Partner”) via the online application form prior to June 30. Applications received after this date will not be assessed until the following year.
Organisations and Community Groups understand that a new application form must be completed and submitted annually, and that being a Community Partner in the past does not guarantee that the partnership will automatically be renewed.
Organisations and Community Groups are permitted to reapply for the Community Partner Program every year.
During the application process Organisations and Community Groups will provide one key contact who will be the first point of call for all communications from Arts Centre Melbourne.
PLEASE NOTE: The Community Support Program is undergoing review from 1 January – 30 June 2020.
In this review period, we are not accepting applications from new community partners.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Community Partners will provide one key contact from their Organisation or Community Group. The key contact agrees to receive and respond to all correspondence from Arts Centre Melbourne pertaining to the Community Partner Program and Community Partnership including, but not limited to, booking tickets and providing feedback.
Community Partners will advise Arts Centre Melbourne of any changes regarding their key contact so up to date records are maintained.
Community Partners will work with Associate Producer Access & Inclusion to develop a goal or goals to be achieved through the year of partnership with Arts Centre Melbourne.
