Applications for the 2018-19 Screenwest General Diversity Fund: Stream 2 are now open.

Applications close Monday, 15 April 2019 at 5:00pm AWST.


About the General Diversity Fund

The General Diversity Fund provides funding to production companies, organisations and/or individuals to overcome barriers preventing Western Australian community members from underrepresented groups from participating in professional screen industry activities.

The General Diversity Fund accepts applications twice a year for stand-alone skills development and networking opportunities providing opportunity and access to the screen sector for those unlikely to have achieved otherwise.

In line with Screenwest’s current key strategic focus areas for Diversity, this round will focus on Key Creatives from diverse backgrounds and discovering new talent with diverse stories to tell. Particular focus will be placed on projects with key creatives (writer/director/producer) who identify as CaLD, LGBTQIA+ or as living with Disability.


How To Apply

Please refer to the Diversity Fund: Stream 2 – General Diversity Fund Guidelines for the full guidelines information about how to apply and required application materials.

All program guidelines are to be read in conjunction with the Screenwest Terms of Trade.

Applications close Monday, 15 April 2019 at 5:00pm AWST.

Applicants should note that just prior to a closing date, consultations can be in high demand. Consequently, it is best to telephone or email the program contact for an appointment or general advice well before the advertised closing date.

What is Diversity and Inclusion?

The Australian Human Rights Commission refers to diversity as the differences that distinguish groups of people from one another.

More specifically, as identified in the WA Screen Industry Diversity & Inclusion Roadmap, Screenwest recognises diversity as differences in:

  • gender
  • age
  • Aboriginal identity
  • cultural and linguistic diversity (CaLD)
  • disability
  • sexuality and gender identities, including lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQIA+)
  • location (including regional and remote regions), and
  • socio-economic status
