The ACTF continues to be a strong supporter of theatre for young children across Victoria. The Foundation commissions (in whole or in part) the creative development of new small scale theatre works specifically devised for children, to the point of being tour ready.

Applications are administered by Regional Arts Victoria in the lead up to each commissioning year, and are reviewed by the ACTF Trustees.

Works must address the following ideals:

  • To foster in children a widening interest in the arts and humanity
  • To foster understanding between people of different countries and cultures, including the telling of Indigenous stories
  • To use theatre to explore and present stories from around the world including those of recent arrivals
