The Regional Cultural Fund has been established by the NSW Government to ensure regional NSW receives its fair share of arts and cultural infrastructure and the associated recreational and educational benefits. The Fund will invest $100 million over four years to drive growth in arts, screen, cultural and heritage infrastructure for the social, cultural and economic benefit of communities in regional NSW.

The Fund will support the creation of cultural infrastructure including buildings and structures that support or accommodate the arts, cultural expression and heritage, such as: visual arts, crafts, media arts, performing arts, heritage, museum, archives, libraries, publishing, sound recording, film, audio visual, radio and television.

It will also fund operational funding for museums and galleries to support the delivery of services and operational funding or capital funding to support touring in the regional areas of existing exhibitions or collections.

There are four categories of funding:

  • Large scale regional cultural infrastructure projects over $1 million
  • Medium scale regional cultural infrastructure projects between $60,000 and $1 million
  • Small scale regional cultural infrastructure projects under $60,000
  • Operational projects.

For more information:

The Regional Cultural Fund program will open on Monday 17 July 2017 – more information will be available soon.
