Round 1 of the 21/22 Arts and Cultural Funding Program is open for applications – and what better way to encourage NSW artists, arts and cultural workers and organisations to apply for funding – than to showcase the diversity of funding recipients from previous years.

Golden Memories Millthorpe Museum is independently run and operated by the Millthorpe and District Historical Society as a volunteer run not-for-profit organisation.

In 2020/2021 the Museum received $18,060 through the Arts and Cultural Funding Program’s Organisation Project category to create a Welcome to the Museum history corner. This includes a local audio-visual Wiradjuri exhibition developed with local elders, a village display, and an archives area for storage and access to the museum’s collection of paper archives.

Collections Manager and Executive Member, Hayley Lavers said “This funding has allowed us to achieve several of our strategy plan goals in the short term. This includes creating an archives area and also updating our entrance and early history.”

Applications for the 2021/2022 Arts and Cultural Funding Program’s Organisation Project funding category close Wednesday 18 August 2021. Find out more.
