Creative Arts Fund Open!


The 2020/2021 City of Mount Gambier Creative Arts Fund is now open for applications, with a total of $50,000 available to local artists, not-for-profit organisations and community groups to support the delivery of vibrant, creative and contemporary projects.
The funding is available for creative projects within the City including a site-specific project at Ripley Arcade in Commercial Street West. Projects may focus on performing and visual arts, literature, film, design, multimedia, history and heritage and must align with the City of Mount Gambier Community Plan, Culture and Heritage Plan and Public Art Strategy, with applications assessed against the priorities detailed in the program guidelines.

Arts & Cultural Development Officer, Serena Wong, encourages anyone wishing to apply, to attend the Q&A session Thursday evening at The Riddoch.”With the extra funds available we are looking for exciting and ambitious projects that will inspire our community, and through the Q&A session we’ll really be able to highlight the extent of the opportunities available.”
