Installation of a printing press at PressWEST gallery/studio

First established in 2018 through community consultation, the West Coast Seed Funding Program was designed to provide seed funding support for arts and cultural practitioners connected to lutruwita/Tasmania's remote West Coast.

In 2022, through a partnership between West Coast Council and The Unconformity with funding support provided through Arts Tasmania by the Minister for the Arts, the total program funding pool is $15,000.

Funded outcomes may include travel to attend masterclasses or exhibitions, skills development opportunities, mentoring, project costs, gallery or exhibition infrastructure, or the acquisition of equipment related to creative or cultural endeavours.

Individuals or groups can apply for up to $2500 each.

Applications are open now and will close at 11:59pm AEST on Monday 6 June 2022.

The Unconformity acknowledges the palawa people as the original and traditional custodians of lutruwita/Tasmania. We commit to working respectfully to honour their ongoing cultural and spiritual connections to this land.
