Great news for Woolgoolga Curryfest this year which will feature L-Fresh the Lion, a well-known Sydney-based hip hop artist of Sikh heritage (Sukhdeep Singh Bhogal), performing a special show the evening before the festival.
This feature performance was made possible thanks to funding received by Woolgoolga and Northern Beaches Chamber of Commerce as part of the Festivals Australia program.
The Morrison Government is continuing to reactivate the arts and cultural sector in regional Australia, with 25 projects set to share in more than $870,000, under Round 12 of the Festivals Australia program.
Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said the Festivals Australia program celebrates cultural projects and helps make them available to regional audiences across the country.
“The latest round of funding will support 25 diverse projects spanning music, theatre and visual arts – a strong reflection on Australia’s diverse arts sector which will help attract tourists and bring communities together,” Minister Fletcher said.
The Morrison Government is investing more than $1 billion into the arts and creative sector through a diverse range of programs in 2021-22. The Festivals Australia program supports arts projects that invite community participation and audience engagement at festivals across the country.
