Create NSW Roadshow - first stop GRIFFITH!

Last Wednesday the team of Create NSW kicked off their NSW Roadshow and made their first official stop in the Western Riverina. 17 creatives from our communities took the chance to meet and chat to the experts about the recently published 2017/2018 Arts and Cultural Development Program and the funding opportunities available to help make their newest art project become reality. 

Create NSW experts David Everist, Sam Wild, and Andrea Ulbrick with Ray Wholohan, Coordinator Griffith Regional Art Gallery.

The 2017/2018 Arts and Cultural Development Program program supports visual arts, museums, literature, dance, music, regional touring, capital works and professional development for artists across the state and Create NSW invites artists and arts and cultural organisations across NSW to apply for funding NOW.

“The variety of funding opportunities available through this program will help strengthen our small to medium arts and cultural organisations, create opportunities for skills development and unlock the full potential of artists and cultural practitioners,” Create NSW CEO Michael Brealey said.

“It is central to the continued success of our state’s dynamic arts and culture.”
