Create NSW Creative Koori Projects: Arts & Cultural Funding Program 2021/22

Create NSW's Creative Koori Projects funding is available only to Aboriginal artists, arts and cultural workers, groups and organisations. It aims to support a strong, resilient and exciting Aboriginal arts and cultural sector for NSW. This will be done by embracing the principles of Aboriginal self-determination and putting Aboriginal artists, arts/cultural workers, organisations and communities at the centre of funded cultural and creative activity.

Funding may be requested for a range of activities including but not limited to:

  • NSW Aboriginal cultural development including projects that focus on cultural revitalisation and passing on cultural creative practices and knowledge between generations.
  • Contemporary practice that explores new ways of cultural and creative expression. This can include the creation of new work and practice-based research or experimentation.
  • Sharing NSW Aboriginal culture through productions, exhibitions, performances, publishing or recording, touring and festivals. This can also include projects that foster collaboration or partnerships with others and market/audience development activity.
  • Promoting NSW Aboriginal culture through promotion and marketing activities.
  • Strengthening the NSW Aboriginal arts and cultural sector through a wide range of activities such as:
    • creation of employment pathways for Aboriginal artists
    • professional development for Aboriginal individuals, groups and organisations
    • conservation and/or development of Aboriginal collections and archives of cultural material.

The maximum amount of funding that you can apply for is $60,000.
