Arts OutWest is offering small grants to ‘re-start’ arts practice and activity in the Central West.
Grants are on offer for up to $1,000 for individuals, groups and businesses and up to $2,000 for broader community activities.
After a successful first round of quick turn-around micro grants last year, the regional arts development organisation is offering a second round, this time funded through the NSW Government’s Arts Restart package.
“At Arts OutWest we recognise that COV-ID-19 continues to impact on the arts sector in our region and so have directed $24,000 to micro grants,” said Arts OutWest executive director Tracey Callinan.
“We’re keeping the options for how people can spend the funds fairly open, making it possible to use this grant for things that other arts funding often doesn’t cover.”
The $1,000 grants are open to any individuals, groups, councils or businesses engaged in the arts and can be used for costs or activities, such as equipment, training, marketing, development of new work or presentation, performance or exhibition of work.
The $2,000 grants are to support activities or projects that engage and benefit a section of the community. This might include workshops, community events or collaborations between a number of groups or artists. To be eligible you must be based in the Arts OutWest region; your request must be arts related; and your request must offer a way of helping ‘restart’ your community’s arts practice, engagement or experience.
There will be a very quick turnaround for applications and delivery with applications closing on Monday, 22nd March.
