The Australian Government announced more than $750,000 for 18 projects from the Festivals Australia program that assists community members living in regional and remote Australia to participate in or attend an arts driven experience at a festival or community celebration.
The funding will support 18 high quality, innovative festival related projects that aim to encourage community participation and attendance and support partnerships and collaboration across the arts and culture sector.
This funding round includes both single and multi-year projects that will take place across six states and territories and represent a range of art forms from music, circus arts, community arts, multimedia, digital arts and craft.
The Festivals Australia program complements other Australian Government funding aimed at supporting cultural activity in regional communities, delivered through the National Collecting Institutions Touring and Outreach program, the Visions of Australia program and the Regional Arts Fund.
Visit the Festivals Australia page for more information about how to apply for the next round and a list of current funding recipients.
