During recent COVID-19 restrictions, the Theatre Board offered small grants to encourage student theatre groups and individuals to stay connected and creative by undertaking projects and activities remotely.

The quick-response grants, available during semester one 2020, were to the value of up to $200 for individuals and $700 for student theatre groups.

Projects and activities took several forms such as online writing workshops, software licences and subscriptions, mentorship by a professional artist, visual art development, and mixing and promoting a music project.
