Regional Arts Development Central West NSW
Occasional small grants offered or coordinated by Arts OutWest.

Arts OutWest is a service organisation rather than a funding body  – but we do administer some annual small grants programs:

  • The NSW Government’s annual Country Arts Support Program (CASP)
  • In 2020, in response to Covid-19 impacts on our industry we ran a Micro Grants round of 23 small grants (just over $21,000)
  • A 2021 round of Arts Restart Micro Grants opens on Tuesday 2 March and closes 5pm Monday 22 March. This makes use of funds from the NSW Government’s Arts Restart package. Details below under news.

Make sure you subscribe to our enews for announcements of future small grants.
