Four Year Investment for Organisations

Four Year Investment for Organisations (FYIO) is a significant multi-year investment program for arts and cultural organisations. It is one of the largest investments Creative Australia makes in Australian arts and culture, providing organisations with the ability to contribute to the cultural life of the nation through the presentation of artwork, to audiences regionally, nationally and internationally.

Four Year Investment provides multi-year investment for small to medium arts and cultural organisations. This investment enables organisations to plan with longer-term certainty and increase their capacity to leverage other support and collaborations.

Organisations must demonstrate a high degree of artistic achievement, along with a compelling four-year vision for the investment period. To be competitive, organisations must also demonstrate they are well governed, effectively managed, and generate diverse income streams.

It is the intention of this category to invest in organisations that are part of the small to medium arts and cultural sector. Large, well-resourced organisations or institutions seeking investment in multi-year arts programs may not be considered a priority for investment in this category.

Four Year Investment for Organisations is a two-stage process. Stage one is an expression of interest (EOI). If an organisation is successful in its first stage expression of interest, it is invited to make a full Stage 2 application for assessment.

See the guidelines page for further information.

Organisations approved for investment in 2025-2028 were announced on Wednesday 13 December 2023.

The full list of organisations can be found on our website.

Industry Advisors are experts in their field with relevant experience and knowledge of an arts practice or sector. Industry Advisors reviewed applications under arts practice areas and made recommendations for Creative Australia to consider when deliberating on the final decisions for multi-year investment programs.
