“A truly outstanding opportunity.”
Rowan Brand, Boy and Bear

In its seventh year, THE SEED FUND continues to align itself with the philosophy: Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day, teach him how to fish and he’ll eat forever.  This year, The Seed wishes to continue to nurture and support artists and arts workers throughout the emerging phases of their careers.

Here’s a taste of some of the opportunities up for grabs:
– Three opportunities available to managers who have come through the Seed Management Workshop to engage a publicist to the value of $5000.
– Check out the Art For The Public/Next Wave category for details on the new and exciting partnership worth up to $7500 with Next Wave festival for visual artists.
– Unrivaled access to industry experts for up to 25 emerging managers thanks to the Management Workshop. Invaluable to an industry where no manual exists to guide you, this is an incredible opportunity to come face to face with leaders in their field.
– For the fourth year running, Falls / Southbound will offer one lucky band the opportunity to perform at both festivals.

Further details regarding the categories and how to apply before April 8th can be found at
