Grants to support arts and culture flood recovery
Dozens of arts and cultural organisations, screen practitioners, individual artists and collaborative groups impacted by recent floods will have access to $500,000 in funding.
The Recovery Grants for NSW Creatives will support 49 artists, individuals and groups in the arts and cultural sector who have been directly impacted by floods, and gives them the certainty they need to come back strongly and confidently.
In addition to the $500,000 in Recovery Grants for NSW Creatives, the NSW Government has to date delivered $345,000 in funding to support the affected arts, screen and culture community, including $180,000 in micro-grants to address immediate needs and $50,000 for the conservation of damaged material held in the Richmond River Historical Society’s museum collection.
The Recovery Grants for NSW Creatives program is designed to provide targeted support to individuals, groups and organisations in the small-to-medium arts and cultural sector in flood and/or extreme weather-affected NSW communities. A full list of recipients is available here.
