This program provides funding to ATASDA members living anywhere in Australia to assist with their continuing professional development in textile arts and surface design. Any member who meets all the eligibility criteria can apply for a grant.

Note: An applicant MUST have been an ATASDA member continuously for a minimum of 18 months to apply. 

These grants are to enable participation in a course or forum to expand skills in an area of interest relevant to textile art and surface design, or to develop an aspect of the member’s textile art practice, for example, by having an art exhibition or artist residency.
