Arts and Cultural Funding Sources
Where to find arts funding, how to apply for it and how Arts OutWest can help.
Firstly, Arts OutWest is not a funding body and does not (typically) have any funds of our own to give out.
We provide advice on where to look for appropriate funds; we run arts funding workshops; and we provide support for people in the region putting together funding applications (including advice, reviewing applications and providing letters of support).
We also coordinate the local applications and assessment of the Country Arts Support Program.
We can also auspice funding applications for suitable regional projects.
We post funding opportunities as they come across our desk on our Facebook page.
