Over 100 recipients will share in more than $4 million as part of round 2 of NSW Government’s Arts and Cultural Funding Program for 2020/21. Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said this funding will build on the State Government’s support for musicians and live music venues this year. The funding will support the state’s talented artists, workers and organisations including 12 Aboriginal-led projects and 20 projects with a focus on First Nations communities to deliver strong arts and cultural outcomes for NSW audiences.
“Investing in our artists helps to build our economy and strengthen our arts and cultural offerings for local audiences and visitors to our great State. The extraordinary projects funded through Round 2 will employ over 8,300 artists and reach more than 3.4 million people across the State,” Mr Harwin said.
All applications were assessed against published criteria and ranked in order of merit by the Artform Advisory Boards.
