RDA Central West is calling on all arts practitioners, groups and communities across the region to not miss out on their opportunity to apply for support through the Regional Arts Fund.

The Regional Arts Fund’s community grants aim to support sustainable cultural development in regional and remote Australia and meet the strategic priorities of supporting participation in, and access to, the arts and encouraging greater private sector support for the arts. RDA Central West CEO Sam Harma, said the Central West has a distinctive and vibrant arts scene which drives local jobs and tourism across the region.

“This fund will support a range of artists and projects across a diverse spectrum of the arts.

“Whether it is established Hill End artists or a budding string quartet from one of our region’s conservatoriums to large scale music events such as Bathurst’s Inland Sea of Sound Festival or Parkes’ Elvis Festival – offerings in our region are diverse and the opportunities are immense.

“I encourage interested artists to look seriously at this fund and see if this can help take their individual practice, group or event to the next level,” said Mr Harma.

The Regional Arts Fund promotes participation in, and access to, Australia’s arts and culture in regional and remote Australia.

The fund focuses on encouraging and supporting sustainable economic, social and cultural development in regional communities, developing partnerships and networks, developing audiences and broadening community engagement with the arts, and increasing employment and professional development opportunities for, regional artists.

Applications for the Regional Arts Fund’s community grants opened on June 30th and close 5pm, Sunday 25 August 2019.
