Wollongong City Council's Ward Based Arts Grant Program aims to further develop community cultural development projects on a ward funding basis.
You will need to specifically say in your application which ward your project will be delivered in. The Ward Based Arts Grant will support local arts-based community cultural development projects and programs created by collaborations between communities and artists that result in a wide range of artistic and developmental outcomes.
The goal of the grant program is to add to the artistic and creative amenity in each ward. Your application should state what the outcome will be of your proposal, eg a new mural, a performance program, a sculpture, a laneway project, etc. Your project process will also need to demonstrate how community members will experience a creative project both during and after its development in their local place.
Applicants can request up to $22,500.
"Community Cultural Development (CCD) is a broad term covering a wide range of activities and art forms that give communities working with artists the opportunity to tell their stories, build their creative skills, and be active participants in the development of their culture."
Artists and communities who are culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD), and Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders are encouraged to apply.
