ARTISTS, event organisers and heritage property owners are invited to apply for support through Wollongong City Council’s Financial Assistance programs.
From this month until March 28, applications can be submitted for assistance through the Wollongong Heritage Fund, Small Cultural Grants, Small Grants NAIDOC Week Event, Sponsorship of Community Events and Contribution to Public Bands and Choirs programs.
Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery said Council’s Financial Assistance programs cover a broad range of activities that make Wollongong a more creative and vibrant place.
“Council is committed to supporting projects that bring people together and contribute to the region’s arts and cultural development.
“There’s over $160,000 in funding available across our Financial Assistance programs, so this is a great opportunity for individuals and community groups. Whether you’re organising a community event, restoring a heritage property, or have an idea for an innovative cultural project, I’d encourage you to apply to Council for support before 28 March.”
A series of information sessions will be held in Wollongong Central Library’s theatrette to provide potential applicants with more details on the Small Cultural Grants, Sponsorship of Community Events and Contribution to Public Bands and Choirs programs.
