Objectives of the QASP:
- Supports the development and presentation of new arts and cultural works by individual Queensland artists, organisations, and communities
- Strengthens skills development, and provide new employment and career development opportunities for artists and arts workers

What the funding can be used for:
- The Fund supports applications from individuals and organisations for projects and programs at different stages of development and across multiple stages from creative development through to production, presentation, and distribution

- In addition, applicants have the options to apply for additional funding towards an industry placement as part of the project, and/or the fees for the commissioning of new live or recorded music as part of your project.
- Single year projects: up to $70,000 for projects and programs for up to 12 months.
- Two-year projects: up to $150,000 (open to applications in January and April 2023) for projects and programs that need a larger and/or longer scale of development of up to two-years and include presentation and/or distribution.
Applicants may only receive 1 QASP grant per calendar year.
Additional funding available:
- PLUS up to $60,000 towards a full-time industry placement for 12-months (or a pro rata equivalent for part-time) with a focus on arts management and/or arts production
- PLUS up to $10,000 towards fees for Queensland-based composers, musicians or librettists to support the commissioning of new live or recorded music as part of your project.
