Minister for the Arts, Ben Franklin, and Local Member for Davidson, Jonathan O’Dea, are calling for applications from the Davidson Electorate to the NSW Government’s Arts and Cultural Funding Program (ACFP).

Professional artists and creatives, arts and cultural organisations, and local councils are all invited to apply for funding through the 2022/23 Program. The funding aims to increase access and availability of arts and cultural experiences across NSW.

“The Arts and Cultural Funding Program supports the state’s vibrant arts and cultural sector, local economies and jobs, and is part of the Government’s commitment to supporting NSW’s world-renowned creative network and ensuring the sector is stronger than ever,” Mr Franklin said. 

Mr O’Dea encouraged applications from local artists and organisations that would shine a light on the innovation, vibrancy and creativity within the local arts and cultural sector.

“Everyone deserves access to enriching creative experiences and the ACFP is one of the largest investments in arts and culture funding of its kind by any state government in Australia,” said Mr O’Dea.
“This funding is a great opportunity for our local artists and arts and cultural organisations to get creative and submit ideas that can deliver on a range of arts and creative activities and offerings, this is an opportunity to enrich our community.” Mr O’Dea said.

The $67.7 million Arts and Cultural Funding Program for 2022/23 is part of the NSW Government’s record $271 million investment in the program from 2021-2024.
Applications for Round one close on 29 August 2022.
