Getting the Show back on the Road supports a percentage of box office loss for performing arts and live music events where there is a negative impact due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Stream A eases the financial risks for performing arts organisations, live music producers and presenters, festival organisers and commercial event companies to stage a show or tour during this uncertain time.
Stream B supports DLGSC recurrently-funded or project-funded organisations and individuals for events impacted by the extension of the COVID-19 Phase 4 restrictions that were announced by the State Government of Western Australia on 18 August 2020.
The Getting the Show back on the Road program is a part of the WA Recovery Plan’s $15 million shared risk package to reactivate live performances and touring activities.
Applications will be considered from WA performing arts organisations, live music event producers and presenters, festivals organisers (for a program of activities or a component of the program) and commercial event companies.
Applications will be considered from DLGSC recurrently-funded or project-funded organisations and individuals who presented, or planned to present, activity between 18 August and 24 October 2020.
Refer to the guidelines for more information before applying.
