Regional NSW invited to partner and create art

Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant is calling on local art organisations to apply for funding to support strategic partnerships that deliver high-quality arts and cultural activities.

Mr Grant said the Regional Partnerships round of arts funding grants is now open until 20 June 2016 under the NSW Government’s 2016/17 Arts and Cultural Development Program.

“Funding is available to support strategic partnerships across the arts and cultural sectors, including partnerships with local government authorities or other public, private or community organisations,” Mr Grant said.

“This funding can support significant strategic and long-term partnerships in our community to stimulate strong and diverse arts and cultural activities.

“The NSW Government is committed to investing in arts and cultural activity to support employment and professional development of artists and cultural workers.”

Mr Grant said examples of collaborative partnerships could include regional organisations working with metropolitan-based theatre companies to tailor local programs, or regional galleries partnering with local health services so patients can participate while recovering.

“This support is providing opportunities for more people to experience arts and culture and is in line with our Government’s Create in NSW policy framework that focuses on access, strength and excellence,” Mr Grant said.

Applications are invited from organisations, partnerships and groups in regional NSW for new projects or significant development of current projects.

Grants of up to $150,000 over two years are available for projects which can commence after 1 January 2017 and be completed by 31 December 2018.
