The NSW Government is investing $9.37 million in the state’s arts and cultural sector through Round 1 of Create NSW’s 2021/22 Arts and Cultural Funding Program.
198 recipients will share in $9,371,594 million in funding that will deliver record arts and cultural activity across NSW, contributing to the state’s broader economic recovery.
