NSW communities to benefit from improved cultural infrastructure

NSW communities to benefit from improved cultural infrastructure
September 24, 2021

The NSW Government’s Creative Capital program aims to benefit communities through its delivery of $60 million towards new and improved cultural infrastructure.

Applications for the Creative Capital grants are open and address the demand for cultural infrastructure, support the creative economy and improve access for local communities to quality arts venues.

NSW Minister for the Arts Don Harwin notes "Creative Capital demonstrates the NSW Government's commitment to the development of new and upgraded cultural infrastructure, projects to enable more regional touring, and digitisation projects that support the creative industry and cement NSW’s position as the nation’s arts and cultural leader far into the future.

“This program will help NSW communities to do and see more of the arts they love. The new Creative Capital program is for the whole state and will strengthen cultural tourism and local economies across the state by supporting NSW’s vibrant arts and cultural offerings. 

“The NSW Government is investing in arts and culture programs and upgrading and developing fit-for-purpose cultural facilities like museums, theatres, performance spaces, galleries and Aboriginal Keeping Places right across the state. It’s a significant investment that will bring terrific benefits to both artists and audiences alike.”

The Creative Capital fund will be delivered by the NSW Government through Create NSW over two years, across two categories:

  • Minor Works and Equipment Projects for grants from $5,000 up to $250,000
  • Medium to Large Projects for grants from $250,000 up to $5,000,000.

Grants will be available to fund new infrastructure or to upgrade existing cultural infrastructure to make existing spaces fit for purpose. Communities will benefit with fit-for-purpose, high performing museums, theatres, performance spaces, galleries, Aboriginal Cultural Centres, Keeping Places and language centres across NSW.
