IMPACT ON ORGANIZATIONS
Support enabled some fledgling organisations to grow and develop – in some case, from one-person initiative to an organisation.
Support is seen as an endorsement of the recipient’s work and can be used to attract other funding.
Support allows recipients to develop to a point where they can network with other partners and create synergies that make them stronger and reduce their vulnerability.
Support enabled organisations to later approach other funders with a good financial system in place.
IMPACT ON THE INDUSTRY
Support added to the vibrancy and dynamism of the sector, both through the support of existing organisations and the support of new, interesting initiatives that might not have developed with support form ACT.
Support enabled development of materials that benefit schools, curriculum developers, libraries and other organisations.
Support ensured that arts and culture reaches as many communities as possible, as well as bringing disparate ideas and cultures together.
Support enabled the creation of employment opportunities or the continuation of employment of practitioners.
