NSW ARTS FUNDING APPLICATIONS OPEN

NSW ARTS FUNDING APPLICATIONS OPEN

11 September 2008

The Nationals Member for Lismore Thomas George has encouraged anyone interested in doing so to apply for the 2009 Arts Funding Program.

Mr George said a recent review of the NSW Cultural Grants Program, which the Arts Funding Program replaced, recommended:

“The 2009 Arts Funding Program is one way that the arts and cultural sectors are supported and developed in New South Wales,” he said.

“The Arts Funding Program supports organisations and venues to deliver performances or exhibitions, business or audience development projects and arts and cultural infrastructure and activities for the people of New South Wales.

“The 2009 Arts Funding Program has now opened, with applications closing Friday October 10.”

Mr George said the 2009 Arts Funding Program Guidelines and the Program Funding Application and Project Funding Application forms were available for download from the Arts NSW website at www.arts.nsw.gov.au or from his office.
