The objectives for the program are as follows;

  • To increase accessibility to the Civic Centre venue for not for profit community performance groups
  • To enhance community awareness and involvement in cultural performances and heighten the profile of community performance groups
  • To enhance community wellbeing, sense of belonging through exposure to high quality cultural events and activities that are of interest to key demographic groups. 

A single funding round will be conducted in June each year to attract six high quality cultural performances to be scheduled in the July – June financial year to follow; funding will not exceed $1200 for any event funded.

Any balance of funds will be utilised to fund one off events that meet the criteria outside of the funding round; funding will not exceed $400 for any event funded.
