Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has sounded the horn for local councils and organisations to apply for funding that will support cultural infrastructure projects to benefit audiences and improve access to arts and cultural facilities in the region.

“We are fortunate to live in a community that supports the arts and continues to support local artists,” Mr Anderson said.

“Whether its growing aboriginal arts and culture through great local organisations like 2 Rivers or hosting exhibitions at one of our galleries like Weswall, there is always something to do and see in our region.

“This funding is a great opportunity to grow our industry even further with funding targeted towards improving infrastructure.”

Minister for the Arts Ben Franklin said the Minor Works and Equipment Projects Round Two grants, delivered through the Creative Capital program, demonstrate the NSW Government’s commitment to invest in projects that reinforce the State’s position as the leading arts and culture hub in Australia.

“We’re calling for applications for projects that will pay dividends for communities across NSW by developing and upgrading fit-for-purpose cultural facilities such as museums, theatres, performance spaces, galleries and Aboriginal Keeping Places and language centres,” Mr Franklin said.

“Cultural equity is at the heart of the NSW Government’s Creative Capital program and thanks to the $60 million investment – more projects like this can now realise their ambitions, providing more people with access to world-class arts and culture, no matter where they live in the state.”

“The people of NSW deserve a rich and diverse cultural offering and this funding will ensure our museums, theatres, performance venues, galleries, libraries and Aboriginal Cultural Centres, Keeping Places and language centres are fit-for-purpose and continue to present quality arts and cultural experiences.”
