$1M in new opportunities for NSW creatives

Small Grants

Simone Slattery, King Island Festival of Arts, Culture and Environment, 2019.

Funding of nearly $1 million from the NSW Government will support a suite of new fellowships, small project grants and professional development opportunities for artists in our state.

Aimed at boosting local and international development opportunities, partnerships have been formed with leading cultural organisations including the Powerhouse Museum, Griffin Theatre Company, Sydney Dance Company and the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, to provide fellowship opportunities for musicians, actors, dancers and visual artists.

The NSW Government has also made a commitment to ongoing Small Project Grants funding of between $500 and $5,000 for time-sensitive national and international opportunities that fall outside of scheduled funding rounds.

Rafael Bonachela, Artistic Director for Sydney Dance Company said, “Sydney Dance Company is thrilled to partner with Create NSW to provide the invaluable opportunity for future artistic leaders. We are grateful for the support of Create NSW in helping to create pathways for the next generation of dance industry talent.”

Lee Lewis, Artistic Director of Griffin Theatre Company said, “Creating new opportunities for young artists to grow is an investment in the imagination capacity of the nation. This fellowship will support talented and driven artists who will go on to lead the country. Watch this space!” 

For information about the new Fellowships to come shortly.

Applications open from 5pm, Monday 11 November. Guidelines and applications found here.
