Blacktown City Council is launching a pilot grant scheme to support our talented community.
The Creative Arts Fund will support artistic endeavours for local artists, groups and community organisations.
Grants will be awarded in two categories:
- Category A will provide a grant of up to $3,000 to community groups and organisations to develop artistic programs or projects
- Category B will provide a grant of up to $2,000 to individual artists or artist groups to assist with professional development, or for an artist to work on an arts project with a local community organisation
The Creative Arts Fund is open to Australian residents over 18 years of age who live in Blacktown City, and incorporated non-political organisations who are providing services to Blacktown residents (including non-profit, non-government community, cultural or arts organisations).
The fund will provide local artists with a unique opportunity for professional development, to explore creative connections to communities, and to experiment with new art forms.
Applications for the Creative Arts Fund are open now, and close on Friday 27 May 2016.
