The funding is part of the NSW Government’s Country Arts Support Program that will provide small grants to arts and community organisations, and arts councils in regional communities for 99 short-term projects (PDF, 0.28MB).

Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said the grants would provide opportunities for people of all ages to learn new skills and experience the joys of art first-hand.

“NSW Government funding is helping to deliver opportunities for people across the state to become involved in arts and culture and is supporting those working in the arts,” Mr Grant said.

The Country Arts Support Program is an Arts NSW devolved funding program administered by Regional Arts NSW on behalf of the NSW Government. Arts NSW is the government's arts policy and funding body.
