The arts and cultural sector has been significantly affected by COVID-19.
The City of Perth recognises that investment in the arts is pivotal to ensuring the cultural enrichment and economic diversity of our City and the importance of nurturing thriving and sustainable cultural, artistic and heritage industries, activities and events that encourage tourism and support the vibrancy of our community.
Through the Arts & Cultural Quick Response Grants, the City will rapidly provide up to $5,000 in funding to activities and projects that support the arts and cultural sector to emerge from COVID-19 stronger than ever.

The Arts & Cultural Quick Response Grants provide funding aimed principally at supporting small to medium arts organisations and individual arts practitioners on projects which lead to opportunities for local artists and support the arts and cultural fabric of the City of Perth.
