The Artist-in-School Scheme (AISS) supports collaboration between individual schools and local artists/arts educators in developing arts education programmes customised for their students.
The scheme aims to:
- Support arts projects aligned with the school’s long term plans of developing a vibrant arts culture
- Enhance students’ appreciation of the arts and creative thinking process through interactive learning from artists
- Support projects that have a whole-school approach
NAC provides schools with seed grants of up to $10,000 or 30% of the project’s qualifying costs (whichever is lower). After the first year, schools are eligible to apply for the NAC-AISS grant for the same project for up to a maximum of 2 consecutive years.
