The Australia Council for the Arts is supporting major community arts and cultural development projects through the new creative communities partnership initiative.
The creative communities partnerships are the result of the Australian Government’s announcement of a creative communities initiative worth $10 million over four years in the May Budget.
Creative communities partnerships aim to support major community arts and cultural development projects of excellence that deliver to the community partnerships priority areas, align arts and non-arts partners and have clear outcomes that extend beyond the life of the project.
Creative communities partnerships support opportunities for Australians to participate in meaningful arts and cultural activities in the places where they live, encouraging innovation and enhancing community wellbeing.
Proposals may include a range of diverse but related activities and could be for a period of up to three years for total amounts between $50,000.00 and $600,000. Projects must be completed by 30 June 2012.
