There are currently several arts and cultural funding opportunities available including Country Arts Support Program grants and Regional Arts Fund grants.
CASP grants are administered by Regional Arts NSW, via Western Riverina Arts, and are designed to assist arts and community organisations, and local arts councils in regional NSW to fund short-term locally-initiated projects.
So if you have an idea you think may be eligible contact Western Riverina Arts executive officer Derek Motion to discuss your application on 0428 882 059 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Regional Arts Fund grants are an Australian Government initiative that supports sustainable cultural development in regional communities in Australia.
These grants are for larger projects and can be delivered over a two-year period. Eligible projects include new initiatives, partnerships, small festivals and biennial events.
