Creative Arts Fund

Applications for the 2020 Blacktown City Creative Arts Fund will open on 17 February.

The Creative Arts Fund fosters an active and vibrant independent arts and cultural sector to strengthen Blacktown City’s economic capacity through the potential establishment of creative industries, and increased visitor attractions.

Please note that the Creative Arts Fund is only available to residents of the Blacktown Local Government Area.
