The NSW government’s Creative Capital program aims to help communities by providing $ 60 million for new and improved cultural infrastructure.
Applications for the Creative Capital Scholarships are open and meet the demand for cultural infrastructure, support the creative industries and improve access for local communities to quality art venues.
NSW Secretary of the Arts Don Harwin stated, “Creative Capital demonstrates the NSW government’s commitment to developing new and improved cultural infrastructure, projects that enable more regional travel, and digitization projects that support the creative industries and the position of NSW as the art of the country solidify and cultural guide far into the future.
“This program will help NSW communities do and see more of the art they love. The new Creative Capital program is nationwide and will boost cultural tourism and local economies across the state by supporting NSW’s vibrant arts and culture.
“The NSW government invests in arts and culture programs, and enhances and develops useful cultural institutions such as museums, theaters, performance rooms, galleries, and Aboriginal Keeping Places across the state. It’s a significant investment that will bring tremendous benefits to both artists and audiences. “
The Creative Capital Fund will be provided by the NSW government through Create NSW over a two-year period in two categories:
- Smaller construction and equipment projects for grants ranging from $ 5,000 to $ 250,000
- Medium to large projects for grants ranging from $ 250,000 to $ 5,000,000.
Grants will be available to finance new infrastructures or to modernize existing cultural infrastructures to make existing spaces fit for purpose. Communities will benefit from functional, high-performing museums, theaters, performance rooms, galleries, Aboriginal cultural centers, keeping places and language centers across NSW.
