Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and the state-wide lockdowns in NSW, the quick response grants of up to $1,000 are available to support the region’s creative community. Independent practicing artists or organisations working across all art forms are eligible to apply.
Designed to support the Northern Rivers arts and cultural community in maintaining their creative endeavours in unprecedented times, this funding aims to be as flexible as possible. Projects do not require a specific outcome but can focus on skills development or capacity-building.
Individuals or arts organisations must be based in the Northern Rivers region to apply. Proposed projects or activity must be arts related and in response to hardship due to the effects of COVID-19 on the community.
Arts Northern Rivers will consider a wide range of requests that adhere to restrictions and social distancing requirements. Applications for arts related projects can include online activity exploring workshop delivery, professional development, exhibitions, marketing and more. Creatives looking for assistance in delivering arts activities during an ‘at home residency’ can also submit applications, along with many more creative endeavours considered.
Applications are now open and close on Wednesday the 22nd of September.
