CASP Applications Now Open

Western Riverina Arts encourage local community organisations to come and discuss applying for funding through the Country Arts Support Program (CASP), which closes Tuesday 1st October 2013 for delivery in 2014.

"CASP grants are for up to $3000 funding and designed to primarily cover professional artist's fees and expenses such as travel and accommodation," said Derek Motion, Regional Arts Development Officer.

"Any community-based incorporated group can apply and I hope they will.

"Individual artists can also apply, they simply need to have their application auspiced by an incorporated group."

CASP provides small grants to arts and community organisations in regional NSW for short term, locally initiated projects.

The Program aims to support locally determined cultural activities and make them accessible, so communities can explore and express their cultural identities. Benefits include social and economic outcomes for the community through training, employment and promotional activities, while leading to greater awareness and appreciation of cultural diversity in rural and regional New South Wales.
