Small Project Grants support the creation, development and presentation of new work and professional development or promotion for NSW-based professional artists and arts and cultural workers.
You can apply for between $500 and $5000 towards your project.

– Support professional artists to explore the possibilities of presenting work in ways that is consistent with public health orders
– Support professional artists to respond to the impacts of the 2019 bushfire season and COVID-19 crises, for local communities, in supportive and creative ways
– Strengthen the capacity of NSW-based professional artists and arts and cultural workers to become arts and cultural leaders.
