Community Arts and Cultural Development (individuals and groups)

Community Arts and Cultural Development (individuals and groups) is one of three programs to be delivered as part of the $1 million Community Arts and Cultural Development Fund.

This initiative supports Tasmanian artists to partner with communities to develop and deliver community arts and cultural development (CACD) activities with and for communities.

These activities should be focused on developing meaningful and relevant work through inclusive collaborations between artists and community members.

Activities should also benefit Tasmanian artists and arts workers.

Artists with less experience or who are emerging in CACD can include activities that involve collaboration with experienced practitioners.

Applications are currently closed. Sign up for Arts Tasmania’s newsletter for funding and program announcements.
