Festivals Australia program connecting regional communities

The Government has announced more than $750,000 for 18 projects from the Festivals Australia program that will assist community members living in regional and remote Australia to participate in or attend an arts-driven experience at a festival or community celebration.

The funding will support 18 high-quality, innovative, festival-related projects that aim to encourage community participation and attendance and support partnerships and collaboration across the arts and culture sector.

This funding round includes both single and multi-year projects that will take place across six states and territories and represent a range of art forms from music, circus arts, community arts, multimedia, digital arts and craft.
