2014 Indent Partnership Grants Now Open - MusicNSW

The 2014 Indent Partnership Grants are now open! Two grant categories are available, the Grass Roots Grant and the Event Development Grant, and both are for youth music events happening in 2014. The Indent Partnership Grants program, funded by ArtsNSW, has been specifically developed for young people to stage all-ages, drug and alcohol free live music events across NSW. The grants program also assists young event promoters and emerging artists by offering support, advice, workshops and the resources required to create sustainable and accessible culture of live music in their local areas.

The Grass Roots Grants are specifically aimed at entry-level events like band comps, open-mic and local band nights and are set at a maximum of $2,500. The Event Development Grants are available to those who have successfully acquitted a Grass Roots Grant in 2013 and are looking at expanding their event scope by engaging the professional music industry. Event Development grants are set at a maximum of $5000.

Indent Partnership Grant guidelines and application forms are now available from www.indent.net.au/grants/. Applications will close 5pm, Friday October 25, 2013, and only those postmarked on or before that date will be accepted.

Indent works closely with young people in a skills development capacity through funding, support, advice, workshop and resources for all-ages entertainment. The Partnership Grants program is a part of Indent-a MusicNSW project funded by the NSW Government through ArtsNSW.

Please note: If you are a recipient of a previous Indent Partnership Grant, you will need to have submitted a completed event report and final grant acquittal before applying for 2014 funding.
