City of Whittlesea

Whittlesea Creative Communities Fund

Council is launching a new grants program, the Whittlesea Creative Communities Fund, that has been designed to provide funding for creative projects to directly respond to the impacts of Covid-19.

This grant is open to those working in our local creative sectors including artists, musicians, performers, producers, community artists, not-for-profit arts organisations and community/cultural groups to create and present work.

The City of Whittlesea understands that artists across the municipality are experiencing financial difficulty so these grants will provide funding of up to $2000. We also understand that artists are able to provide community connection and creativity to survive this period of crisis positively. The arts are a proven and effective vehicle known to strengthen community connection, emotional wellbeing and recovery.
