Community-based Arts Projects

Arts Grant applications for 2019-2020 are now open and must close at midnight on Sunday 31 March 2019.

The Arts Grants program supports a diverse range of artists, arts practices and organisations across three new grant categories. To view all categories, please visit our website.

Who can apply?

If you are applying as an individual or group, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

You may not apply for a grant if you received a grant, or administered a grant, from the City of Kingston in the past and that grant has not been satisfactorily acquitted.

Applications must meet the eligibility criteria requested within the application form.

Community-based art projects (up to $5,000)

Projects in this funding category are led by a community arts worker or a community group, and involve the full participation of community members. Applicants do not need to live in Kingston but are encouraged to work with communities residing in Kingston. Project outcomes must be presented within the City of Kingston.
