We start by learning about your project and identifying any potential funding that you could consider applying for.
Our aim is to assist you in ensuring that your project is as economically feasible as possible. Our budget consultation service is provided free of charge.
If you are looking for funding, we can help you find the funding bodies and programs that will best fit your project and assist you to draw up a viable budget for your applications. We keep up to date on equity rates and industry standards.
We need to approve your budget before we can agree to auspice your application. If you would like to be auspiced for a funding application, it’s a good idea to get in touch with us as soon as possible and you must notify us a minimum of 3 business days before the grant deadline. The amount of time required to assess your budget will depend on the scale and complexity of your project. If unsure, please contact us sooner rather than later, or risk disappointment if we are unable to auspice your application in the time given.
If you are contacting us well in advance of the application deadline (i.e. 2-4 weeks ahead of the due date), we can provide the following advice and assistance with preparing your application:
Advice about appropriate funding opportunities for your project.
Strategies to maximise the success of your application.
Workshopping your budget with you to further refine it.
If you are approved for funding we assess the total income, help you to re-budget if required, and consider any potential risks. We then manage the funds according to your budget and distribute them at your approval.
When your project is completed you are responsible for the artistic acquittal, and we will organise the financial acquittal.
Finalising all payments and following up any outstanding invoices.
Preparing the financial acquittal documents.
Arranging and overseeing an audit of the project if required by the funding body.
