Change is the new black
A major review has been undertaken regarding arts funding arrangements in NSW. Fourteen different types of grants for arts and cultural activity have been collapsed into three grant options being Projects, Creative Koori and Annual Organisations that will be available through Create NSW. There will now be only two funding rounds per year across the three grant options. The first round of the new Create NSW arts grants programs will open in early August. Keep your eyes peeled for advice in our e-newsletter and social media.
We are delighted that NSW Arts Minister Don Harwin announced at an exhibition opening at Goulburn Regional Gallery in February this year that the Create NSW Regional Roadshow was coming to Goulburn to talk about grants. Little did we know then that there would be a complete revamp of the arts funding models for NSW at the time of his announcement.
The Create NSW grants information session will be on Tuesday 20 August 10.30 – 12.30pm and will focus particularly in the new arts funding streams available for arts and cultural projects including information on the specific categories: Project, Creative Koori Projects and Annual Organisation funding, what has changed from the previous guidelines, how to apply and an opportunity to ask any questions.
This Grant Information session is the only opportunity to hear from Create NSW about the new funding programs in the Southern Tablelands Arts region so save the date and book in at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/arts-and-cultural-funding-program-information-lab-session-goulburn-tickets-66545211519
In addition to presenting the new guidelines, Create NSW are offering artists one-on-one consultations with Create NSW staff about your application. These Lab Sessions will take place after the presentation from 12.30pm – 2.30pm. Bookings are essential here.
