Arts Tasmania 2015 individual artists grants announced

The successful applicants for Arts Tasmania’s 2015 Individual Artists Program have been announced.

Several writers were among the successful applicants to share in $445,083 worth of funding.

The successful applicants in the literature and print media categories were:

  • Christina Booth ($9650 ‘towards the final draft and illustration dummy of The Anzac Tree’)
  • James Boyce ($3000 towards Imperial Mud)
  • Amanda Cromer ($10,240 towards Undercurrent: A Cattis Cull Mystery)
  • Britta Hartmann ($10,000 towards a piece with the working title Island Connections)
  • Karen Knight ($10,000 towards Open Cut Mind)
  • Tansy Rayner Roberts ($8500 towards Keep Calm and Kill the Chef)
  • Ben Walter ($12,000 towards Confessions)
  • Rohan Wilson ($12,000 towards Eaglehawk IDC).


The assessment panel commented on the success of the Crowbar program, which was launched as a pilot program earlier this year. ‘The success of this program had seen a reduced demand on the limited funds available through the Individual Artists Program for 2015 as well as supporting artists who would ordinarily not apply to this program or who would not be eligible for grant funding through the Individual Artists Program,’ said a statement from Arts Tasmania.
