Jonathan Duckworth’s grant application to Creative Victoria for financial assistance through the VicArts Grants funding program was successful. Martin Foley MP, Minister for Creative Industries, has approved a grant of $27,000.00 toward this purpose. This success would not have been possible without the funding from the school research committee to support the writing of the grant.
