Creative Kids Digital is here!
We know the impact of COVID-19 is posing many challenges for the arts and cultural sector, especially for those of you whose passion, and core business, is delivering creative programs in person.
We also know that many arts and cultural organisations and businesses are exploring and developing new ways of connecting with children and young people so that they can continue to participate in creative and cultural activities from home.
To ensure the Creative Kids program continues to support the arts and cultural sector, reduces the cost of living for parents and carers, and enables children and young people to access creative experiences, we have launched Creative Kids Digital.
The updated Creative Kids guidelines include more options for you to deliver your programs online. Digital experiences now include online lessons, activities, workshops, webinars, and film and performance streaming.
Online Providers will need to show that children and young people are able to ask questions or seek lesson support. This can be via phone, email, live video or an online messaging platform.
We have extended the Creative Kids guidelines to include creative and cultural activities that support or link to the school curriculum for 2020. This includes co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and excursions, or incursions packaged as virtual tours, online performances or other digital activities.
Creative Kids vouchers can be used for materials and equipment supplied by a Creative Kids Provider, supporting those who may not otherwise be able to access creative activities or who may have limited access to the internet.
If you’re a Provider:

If you are moving your business to digital channels for the first time, Create NSW has developed a Digital Toolkit to support Creative Kids Providers. The toolkit outlines the changes that have been made to the Creative Kids guidelines, and provides resources to assist you in transitioning your Creative Kids activities to digital platforms.
You may wish to apply for a Creative Kids Digital Small Business Grant to support your transition to digital channels.
