Local artists, not-for-profit organisations and community groups can now apply for the 2022/2023 Creative Arts Fund to support the delivery of inspiring, creative and contemporary projects.
City of Mount Gambier Manager Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre Diana Warnes said Council is committed to working with local artists to ensure individuals and collectives can continue to grow and create ambitious new work.
“Applicants should remember that while developing new work is pivotal, the outcome – where and how the work may be experienced – is just as vital,” Ms Warnes said.
Applications for funding should be for projects with a minimum total project cost of $3,000. An allocation of $50,000 has been made in Council’s 2022/2023 budget for distribution in this annual program.
Projects may focus on but are not limited to, performing and visual arts, literature, film, design, multimedia, history and heritage, festivals, performances, and public celebrations.
Previous recipient Henry Wolff was able to develop and create ‘Lachrymal’, a multi-channel moving image, with the assistance of the 2021/2022 Creative Arts Fund.
“The Creative Arts Fund supported me to develop ‘Lachrymal’, and engage with technology that I have aspired towards for multiple years,” Artist Henry Wolff
Enjoyed not only locally but on a national stage, ‘Lachrymal’ debuted at the Gertrude Street Projection Festival in Melbourne and will be presented in Mount Gambier on the Riddoch Arts and Cultural Centre exteriors from Wednesday 7 September 2022.
