Public schools, preschools, and external music and creative organisations can apply for a share of $280,000 to support and sustain quality music education programs in South Australia.
Successful applicants have previously used the funding to purchase instruments, upskill teachers, start or strengthen collaborative programs, or engage musicians and music organisations.
This is the fourth round of the Music Innovation Fund since the launch of the Music Education Strategy in 2018.
So far $736,000 has been allocated to 104 government schools, preschools and external music and creative organisations.
The fund is part of the state government’s Music Education Strategy 2019 to 2029, setting out South Australia’s long-term vision that all children and young people have access to high-quality music education throughout their schooling.
Applications close 24 September 2021 and successful applicants will be notified later this year.
