The City of Melbourne has opened up applications for their 2014 Annual Arts Grants to artists, groups and organisations with creative ideas to maintain the diversity and quality of the arts in the city.
Open until June 14, Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the grants were an integral part to the continual development of Melbourne’s artistic community.
“From film and visual art, to dance, literature and music events; I am continually impressed with the calibre of arts grants recipients,” he said in a statement released May 6.
There are two funding categories available for application. The ‘Arts Projects’ category is open to any creative types with ideas while the ‘Indigenous Arts’ category is open to Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander artists.
Arts and culture portfolio chair councillor Rohan Leppert said the investment of the city in the arts is central to Melbourne’s vitality and creative richness.
“The Annual Arts Program has been an important source of funding for artists and organisations for over 16 years. Melbourne’s fantastic arts and culture scene isn’t an accident – it takes commitment and investment,” he said in the statement.
