Applicants will be notified in August 2021.

Blacktown Arts is offering a range of opportunities to artists and creatives to apply for funding to develop arts and cultural programs with local communities.

The Fund also creates a platform to build social and cultural connections between the communities of Blacktown City and encourage creative expression through a range of arts and cultural activities.

The Creative Arts Fund is divided into two categories to extend opportunities to community organisations and individual artists.

Community organisations  – Category A

Blacktown-based incorporated community organisations and groups are invited to apply for grants of up to $3,000 (inclusive of GST) to develop artistic programs or projects. The funding enables organisations to pay an artist to design, plan and work with their group/s on an artistic and creative program.

We encourage organisations with no previous experience with arts programs to apply, as well as those with experience.

Who can apply?

  • Local incorporated non-political, non-religious organisations and groups who are providing services to residents in the Blacktown local government area
  • ABN-registered non-profit, non-government community, cultural or arts organisations
  • Organisations with written consent from the artist(s) proposed to work with you for the project
  • Organisations that did not receive funding through the program in 2020
  • Successful organisations will need a certificate of currency and public liability insurance of up to $10,000,000

Applications for the Creative Arts Fund are now closed.

Individual artist or artist groups – Category B:

Individual artists or artist groups are invited to apply for up to $2,000 (inclusive of GST) to assist in their professional development or to work on an arts project with local community organisations or groups.
