Cultural Performance Subsidy 

Camden Council provides a small amount of funding each year to non-profit organisations to provide musical or performing arts entertainment within the Camden Civic Centre for the community.

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.

Employment Opportunities

Camden Civic Centre is frequently looking for casual staff to fulfil duties that may include:

  • Bar work - tray service 
  • Food service
  • Kitchen hands 
  • General duties

Due to the nature of the venue, it is difficult to offer regular work so these casual jobs would suit people who don't need or want consistent work shifts. The positions particulary suit university and senior high school students.

Casual staff are required to be well groomed and must provide their own black dress pants, and comfortable black leather shoes. The rest of the uniform will be provided by the Camden Civic Centre.

If you would like to be considered for causal work please send your resume to mail@camden.nsw.gov.au
