Catalyst Community Art Fund

Tuesday, 7 September 2010

Do you have a community arts project that needs funding? The next round of CANWA's Catalyst Community Art Fund closes soon.

Get your ideas down on paper or pick up the phone to discuss your project idea with CAN WA funding officers. The next round of Catalyst funding closes 30 September for projects starting from 1 January 2011.

Catalyst supports projects that:

  • Facilitate and support Western Australian community-determined arts and culture activities that express local culture and identity
  • Promote the values of community empowerment, social inclusion, respect for diversity and self-determination.

There are three categories. For each category, the following amounts are available:

A - innovate $30,000

for artists and communities interested in developing new and innovative community arts practices. Two projects will be funded per round.

B - create $75,000

for projects that express local culture and identity.

C - develop $15,000

a professional development category for community artists and community cultural development workers for research and/or development in areas that will benefit community and the arts industry in the long term. Applicants can apply for up to $15,000.
