Two new grant programs that opened this week will increase the number and variety of arts and culture activities presented in regional Western Australia, by supporting the costs of their delivery. The Playing WA grant program provides up to $120,000 for performing arts shows to tour to regional and remote locations.
The Regional and Remote Festivals Fund offers up to $80,000 to support the presentation of arts and cultural activities at regional and remote festivals. Funding may support travel, accommodation and salary expenses, or equipment hire and the delivery of community engagement activities.
Applications are open now until October 31, 2019 for local artists, arts groups and organisations, regional local government authorities, Aboriginal communities, and Regional Development Commissions. The grant programs are part of the Regional Arts and Culture Investment Program, which will invest almost $20 million over the next four years for the benefit of regional Western Australia.
