In response to Creative Communities, the NSW arts, culture and creative industries policy, Create NSW’s Arts and Cultural Funding Program is changing to better support artists, arts and cultural organisations and communities across NSW. The purpose of this round of Annual Funding for Organisations is to provide transitional support for arts and cultural organisations, local government authorities and service organisations to deliver arts and cultural activities throughout a single calendar or financial year. This round ensures there are no gaps in funding opportunities while the program transitions to the new multi-year funding program which will start in 2026.

Annual funding for Organisations 2024/25 (including local government authorities) supports innovation, vibrancy and creativity within the NSW arts and cultural sector. This funding will:

  • deliver a dynamic and diverse range of arts and cultural experiences to communities across NSW
  • contribute to the development of a vibrant and accessible arts and cultural sector
  • support the employment and development of professional NSW-based artists and arts/cultural workers (including museum workers).
