Shoalhaven Arts Board Launches 2017 Grants

The Shoalhaven Arts Board has launched the Shoalhaven Arts Grants for 2017 – 2018 and is encouraging local artists to apply for funding under the annual grant funding program.


Last year’s grant recipient, Elyssa Skyes-Smith, created a magnificent site specific installation sculpture that is now housed in the Shoalhaven Entertainment Centre.


Shoalhaven Arts Board Grants are available to Shoalhaven not for profit cultural or arts organisations as well as individuals who wish to submit applications requesting funding support for their arts projects.  Projects will be considered that can demonstrate their capacity to contribute to the City’s creative vision.


The grant funding aims to provide strong support for arts and cultural development at the grass roots level and continue to build a stronger foundation for the arts throughout the whole of our city.


Three grants are available that aim to build a sense of place for the Shoalhaven.  The first category “New Collaborations for a Sense of Place” offers two (2) grants of up to $5000 each available for the grant recipients selected by the Board. The Board envisages projects that will be considered for this category will build a sense of place for the Shoalhaven through artistic and creative collaborations.


The second category for funding is for projects that aim to create and install public art throughout the City with a grant available of up to $10,000.  


Applications close on Friday, 1 September 2017 with details available on the Shoalhaven Regional Gallery Nowra website or from Council’s Administration Offices in Nowra and Ulladulla or at the Shoalhaven City Arts Centre. For further information contact Shoalhaven Regional Gallery on (02) 4429 5444.


The Shoalhaven Arts Board is a volunteer committee made up of Councillors and community members that are passionate about artistic activities.
