Have you got an art project idea for the Dungog shire?

Applications for the 2018 round of the Country Arts Support Program (CASP) are now open. 

CASP provides grants to arts and cultural groups, not for profit organisations and local councils in regional NSW for short term, locally initiated projects.

Schools cannot apply but school Parents and Citizens’ Associations can.

Projects can be in any art form.

The funding is for projects occurring in 2019.

Arts Upper Hunter can assist with developing project ideas, sourcing artists, pay rates, budgets and explaining the online application form.

Not all applicants will need help but all applicants must discuss their application with Arts Upper Hunter before lodgement.

Applications close at 5pm on Friday August 3. For more information, call Arts Upper Hunter on 6541 4776. For guidelines and application form visit  www.regionalartsnsw.com.au/grants/casp
