A new grant program for artists from MusicNSW! - MusicNSW
Artist Support Grant

MusicNSW is proud to announce a new funding program for artists!

Now open for application, the Artist Support Grant aims to support the creation of original contemporary music in NSW and the presentation of NSW artists in NSW and beyond.

In place of the Opportunity Development Grant program, which previously supported artists such as Kwame and Body Type to pursue career development opportunities like BIGSOUND, MusicNSW's Artist Support Grant opens up support to include additional activities for artists.

Artists and artist managers can apply for funding of up to $5,000 to access opportunities for projects such as (but not limited to):

  • Festival performances
  • Showcase opportunities (e.g. Bigsound or EMC)
  • NSW, National & International tours
  • Album or EP recording in NSW
  • Album or EP release PR & marketing
  • Composition development

Applications are open now until June 17th 2019 for projects occurring between September 1st 2019 - August 31st 2020.

To ease the application process for artists, MusicNSW has also developed a step-by-step overview of the grant application. You can view that, plus FAQs and grant guidelines using the link below.
