The Victorian Government has announced the Creative Neighbourhood Infrastructure Support Program to provide grants for infrastructure upgrades that enable creatives to develop and present their work in improved, affordable and accessible workspaces.
The program supports small to medium-sized capital works, digital infrastructure upgrades and equipment purchases and installation.
“This program provides vital support to Victorian creatives, ensuring they have the spaces they need to do their best work and thrive,” Minister for Creative Industries Danny Pearson said.
“We’re strengthening the sector and ensuring that more creatives have the facilities they need to develop new work and grow their careers and businesses.”
Now open for applications, the program has three streams:
First Peoples, with grants available from $5,000 to $150,000. Small grants, with grants available from $5,000 to $74,999 for projects such as minor refurbishments or fit-outs to adapt spaces for creative use. Large grants, with grants available from $75,000 to $150,000 for more significant infrastructure projects.
Applications for the Creative Neighbourhood Infrastructure Support Program close on Thursday, 2 June 2022.
