Development Funding Programme 2019

Malaysian performing artists, visual artists and independent musicians are encouraged to apply to the Development Funding Programme that aims to support the creation, adaptation or re-development of distinctive artistic content that engages audiences in Malaysia and abroad.

Providing funding assistance to Malaysian artists and cultural workers is part of CENDANA’s ‘Empowering the Communities’ strategic pillar.

The Development Funding Programme covers direct expenses of the artistic creation and developmental process only (up to total of RM15,000) per application per calendar year to successful applicants who are actively engaged in the Malaysian arts and culture sector with a minimum of three (3) years track record.

This programme supports the creation process and is to be completed within (twelve) 12 months and includes;

  • Creation of original new works
  • Adaptation and re-development of works across artistic disciplines (with priority given to works promoting Malaysian content)

The stage of the work should result in an original, complete script/ screenplay/ score/ exhibition / live presentation of excerpts.

The funding support is conducted through a highly competitive evaluation process by the Industry Advisory Panel and the Management against stipulated criteria and strength of relevant supporting materials.
