Arts and events grants

The City is committed to nurturing an active and culturally rich community. 

Previously we have done this through the Cultural Development Fund. In late 2019 a new policy was developed and the Cultural Development Fund is no longer active. The City can now support community arts and events through the Community Arts and Events Fund. The Fund aims to support a variety of creative arts, events and cultural projects which contribute to a vibrant, active and connected City, providing opportunities for communities to engage, connect and celebrate our unique lifestyle and places.  

More information about the Community Arts and Events Fund, including Funding Guidelines and details on how to apply, will be available by mid-February 2020.
