THRIVE Creative Grants
Arts Access Victoria has partnered with Port Phillip Council to deliver THRIVE Creative Grants. These grants aim to assist and encourage Victorian Deaf and Disabled artists to:

- increase the diversity of individuals accessing Council’s arts programs and processes.
The creative projects are presented during Open Doors Emerald Hill, a free one-day winter arts festival in July.
