Indent announces 2015 Partnership Grant Recipients – $60,000 towards all-ages, drug and alcohol free live music events in NSW - MusicNSW

Indent is MusicNSW’s youth entertainment initiative, providing funding, workshops, resources, advice and information to an active network of young people throughout NSW to develop, encourage and facilitate all-ages live music. The Arts NSW devolved funding program, Indent Partnership Grants, is administered by MusicNSW on behalf of the NSW Government.

Indent is excited to announce the successful applicants for the Indent Partnership Grant Program, 2015. Once again, we received an incredibly competitive batch of applications, with teams old and new submitting applications that demonstrated the necessity and enthusiasm for more all-ages entertainment options. Indent has subsequently distributed a total of $60,000 to successful teams all across NSW.

The Indent Partnership Grants are tailored towards creating more opportunities for young people to experience live music in an all-ages, drug and alcohol free environment. Teams based all over regional and metropolitan NSW apply for funding every year, each team comprising solely of young people between the ages of 12 and 25. The team collaboratively writes the applications and organises and promotes the shows themselves.

Greg Clennar, Indent Project Coordinator said, “The Indent Partnership Grants provide many key benefits for young people and their communities. Not only does it increase all-ages live music scenes and give young bands the opportunity to play live, but also imparts practical skills in event management for young people interested in a future in the music, events and entertainment industries.” 

Indent Partnership grants are split up into two categories:
– Grassroots grants are for smaller scale, local events and are available up to $2,500.

–  Event Development grants are for previously funded teams looking to stage larger community events and are available up to $5,000.
