To support independent artists, The Blue Room Theatre offers a financial auspice service for independent artists who acquire funding and need an incorporated organisation to take legal and financial responsibility.
We provide funded artists with project management services relating to the administration of the project, including but not limited to: financial and budget advice, contracting, payroll, cashflow, reimbursements and petty cash, public liability, and worker’s compensation insurance.
All other aspects of your project, from creative process and artistic decisions, to marketing and technical needs, are the responsibility of the project artist or producer.
We provide our auspice service for projects that occur between March and November each year. If you are a WA-based independent artist and are applying for funding, get in touch at least two weeks prior to your submission to discuss your project. If we can help, you’ll need to be a Blue Room Theatre member to access the service.
For more information about how it works, what we need to know from you and the cost of our auspice services, please read the FAQs below.
If you have a project that you’d like to have auspiced, please contact our Operations Manager Mitch at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone the office on (08) 9227 7005.
