Upstaged Performing Arts Funding

Upstaged Performing Arts Funding

As part of RMIT Link's Performing Arts Club (PAC), we have allocated funds ($5000) for the creation and development of student projects and works. This can include anything that can be considered to have a performance outcome - theatre, performance art, comedy, magic, music, film etc. Upstaged Funding can be used for specific professional development or for projects aiming to make your campus more creative. Open to all RMIT students, the Upstaged Funding program facilitates projects that are non-study based.

PAC will allocate the funds in $500 allotments throughout the year until they are exhausted.

We are here to help you develop your ideas and make these projects come to life on campus.
