Artists and arts and cultural organisations across NSW are invited to apply for a wide array of funding opportunities under the NSW Liberals & National Government’s 2016/17 Arts and Cultural Development Program.

The program will support visual arts, museums, literature, theatre, dance, music, regional touring, capital works and professional development for artists across the state. The program is a major part of our Government’s Create in NSW 10-year framework which aims to raise statewide participation and attendance in arts and culture.

This program is highly competitive so I encourage local artists and organisations to read the guidelines and consider applying for funding. Applications will run progressively until September and are currently open for the NSW Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship, Performing Arts Touring and Artists Support program.
