Funding opportunities for artists and arts organisations in NSW - MusicNSW

Arts NSW and the Australia Council for the Arts invite you to learn more about our grants – and how to apply for them – by attending a free information session coming to a city or regional centre near you.

Through March and April, representatives from Arts NSW and the Australia Council will be travelling around NSW to meet artists and arts organisations to share information on funding opportunities.

These information sessions run for about two hours and cover:

  • what we do/who we are
  • types of grants available
  • examples of successful projects
  • tips for a successful application
  • further resources
  • questions and answers

Please join us at one of the following locations by clicking on your preferred venue and providing your name, organisation (if applicable), number of attendees and contact number.

RSVPs are essential. Phone Arts NSW on 02 9228 4351 for more information.
