Create NSW Grants. Important New Guidelines and Information


The 2018/19 Arts and Cultural Development Program Guidelines are now online. Funding opportunities are open to NSW-based arts and cultural organisations, NSW professional artists and arts/cultural workers across a wide range of artforms and disciplines.

Be sure to read the Guidelines carefully before applying as each funding category has special eligibility requirements.

Funding rounds that are now open include:

  • Grants for Individuals – Artist Support (Quick Response)
  • Grants for Individuals – Artform Fellowships (NSW Visual Arts Emerging Fellowship)
  • Grants for Projects – Regional Arts Touring
  • Grants for Organisations – Arts and Cultural Organisations including Service Organisations.

All other funding rounds open and close on different dates so be sure to read the Guidelines carefully so you don’t miss out on these key funding opportunities.

Also note Round 2 of the Regional Cultural Fund has now opened. The round includes $5 million specifically for regional public library infrastructure projects, and support for the creation and installation of artist-led public art. Closes September 21. More information at
