About the Cultural Development Fund
Arts and events form an essential part of our community. The Cultural Development Fund aims to provide not-for-profit community organisations with access to funding and in-kind support to assist in the coordination of events and projects within the City of Stirling that contribute to community capacity building, community wellbeing, develop community spirit, enhance cultural diversity and nurture the arts.
Projects and events must directly benefit the City of Stirling community and take place in the City of Stirling.
There are three levels funding available:
Level 1: Flagship Events
