Member for Lismore Janelle Saffin says local councils, not-for-profit organisations and Local Aboriginal Land Councils have until Monday 8 August to apply for the latest round of NSW cultural infrastructure grants.
Grants of up to $250,000 available as part of the NSW Government’s Creative Capital program.
The minor works grants can be used to fund new infrastructure or to upgrade infrastructure to make existing spaces fit for purpose.
They can also be used for master planning and equipment – including systems for recording, broadcast and digitisation.
“Our region is known for its rich arts and cultural life, and it is important that our arts organisations have the facilities to properly showcase and develop local creative talent and that our museums, galleries and cultural centres are fit for purpose.
“I encourage eligible local organisations to apply for this funding so our community can enjoy state-of-the- art museums, galleries, performance spaces, and Aboriginal Cultural Centres,” Ms Saffin said.
Applications for Minor Works and Equipment Round Two grants of between $5,000 to $250,000 are open now and close at 12pm on Monday 8 August 2022.
Guidelines are available on the Create NSW website at www.create.nsw.gov.au
