Published: 3 Dec 2021

Released by: Minister of State


Sixty museums, theatres, performance spaces, galleries and Aboriginal Keeping Places will share in over $6 million as part of Round 1 of Minor Works and Equipment Projects through the NSW Government’s Creative Capital program.

Minister for the Arts Don Harwin said the cultural infrastructure funding will pay dividends for communities across NSW by delivering much needed upgrades and specialised equipment.

“The first 60 projects through Round 1 of the Minor Works and Equipment Projects will pave the way for audiences and workers to enjoy improved arts and cultural facilities, and position NSW as the centre for arts and culture in Australia,”

“This investment will ensure that no matter where people live across NSW, they will be able to see, make and participate in exciting arts and cultural experiences in state-of-the-art, fit-for-purpose creative spaces.”

This funding is part of the NSW Government’s $60 million Creative Capital program to address the demand for cultural infrastructure, support the creative economy and improve access for local communities to quality arts venues.

Round 2 of Minor Works and Equipment Projects will open Monday 11 July 2022.
