It's an exceptional opportunity to take your organisation or performance group to the next level.
There are funding opportunities for Individuals and Groups too, so let's dig into the nitty gritty.

Create NSW’s Annual Program funding is open to arts and cultural organisations as well as local government authorities who are developing a slate of arts and cultural activities.

As with all funding opportunities, it’s a competitive pitching and submission process. To ensure you’ve got the best chance to attract funding, a succinct project vision backed with the right team and skill sets to bring the submission together, are important ingredients for success.
