Create NSW launches major funding program for ambitious arts and culture

Create NSW launches major funding program for ambitious arts and culture
April 11, 2017

Newly formed NSW arts body Create NSW is inviting artists and arts and cultural organisations across the State to apply for funding under the 2017/2018 Arts and Cultural Development Program.

The program supports visual arts, museums, literature, dance, music, regional touring, capital works and professional development for artists across the state.

Create NSW Chief Executive Michael Brealey said the Arts and Cultural Development Program is the bedrock funding program for NSW arts and culture. It is a critical component of the NSW Government’s bold vision for arts and culture as reflected in Create in NSW, the NSW Government’s 10-year policy framework.

Brealey stated “I’m proud to launch the application guidelines for our Arts and Cultural Development Program, which will play a major role in expanding access, building a robust and sustainable cultural sector, and extending the reputation of NSW as the leading state for arts and culture.

“The variety of funding opportunities available through this program will help strengthen our small to medium arts and cultural organisations and unlock the full potential of artists and cultural practitioners. It is central to the continued success of our state’s dynamic arts and culture.”

Brealey said that the program will support projects that focus on excellence, engagement and participation within priority areas including Aboriginal arts and culture, people living and/or working in Western Sydney and regional NSW, people living with disability, people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and young people.

He added “by seeking out and supporting these qualities we will foster and grow an ambitious, contemporary, and progressive sector that is inspired locally, but has national and international appeal.”

Brealey emphasised that the launch of the guidelines comes as the NSW Government works towards better empowering and supporting the arts, cultural and screen sectors in NSW.

Representatives from Create NSW will conduct a Regional Roadshow across the state throughout April and May to promote the program and provide further detail around the funding opportunities available.

Create NSW was established on 1st April 2017, and has responsibility for many of the functions previously undertaken by Arts NSW and Screen NSW.

Applications for the 2017/2018 Arts and Cultural Development Program will run progressively until February 2018.
