Regional Arts Development Central West NSW
Funding opportunities for arts and creative activities
Arts OutWest is a service organisation rather than a funding body (although we do administer some annual small grants programs).
  • We provide advice and information about arts funding (phone, email, in person)
  • We help connect people in our region to funding opportunities
  • We assist people to navigate funding applications
  • We write letters of support for applications
  • We run funding and grant writing workshops
  • We can auspice (financially manage) funding for suitable groups and artists. See our auspicing policy.

Below are some of the latest arts funding opportunities available to people in our region. Follow us on Facebook for opportunities as soon as they become available.
