NSW Government Live Performance Grants to revitalise CBD
Music and performance will return to the Sydney CBD this summer with $500,000 in NSW Government grant funding for live events over summer 2020/21.
Play the City (Sydney): NSW Artists and Musicians Grants will support individuals, venues and arts organisations to present live performance, and help rebuild visitor numbers affected by COVID-19.
The funding will support the local live music and performance scene to activate venues and public spaces to bring people back to the city in a COVID-safe way, and support the reopening of small venues that have been hit hard as a result of the pandemic.
Successful applicants will receive up to $10,000 to present a one-off performance or series of live events that support the presentation of new work to Sydney audiences.
Applications for Play the City (Sydney): NSW Artists and Musicians Grants close 11:59pm AEDT Sunday 6 December 2020 for projects that commence between 16 December 2020 and 28 February 2021, 11:59pm AEDT. To apply, visit the guidelines.
