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 total)
  • A 2021 round of Arts Restart Micro Grants using funds from the NSW Government’s Arts Restart package, the Australian Government’s IVAIS and Arts OutWest’s own funds. Applications closed 22 March 2021.

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