Local art projects and community groups can apply for a funding boost in the City of Fremantle’s latest round of arts and community grants.
Twice a year, in March and September, the City offers arts grants of up to $25,000 and community grants up to $10,000 for projects or activities that contribute to Fremantle’s wellbeing, vibrancy and cultural diversity. The grants are financed from the City’s annual arts pool of $50,000 and community pool of $60,000.
City of Fremantle Community Development Manager Beverley Bone said the grants program empowered groups and individuals to develop their ideas, projects and events.
“Over the years, we’ve seen the grants program provide much-needed financial assistance for projects that support Freo’s vibrant arts and cultural sector, activate the city’s surrounds, facilitate learning opportunities and skills development for residents and strengthen community connection,” Ms Bone said.
