$31,000 IN COMMUNITY GRANTS SUPPORTING REGIONAL ARTS PROJECTS ACROSS THE WIMMERA MALLEE AND MILDURA REGION.

The Australian Government Regional Arts Fund has offered three grants to applicants across the Wimmera Mallee and Mildura region to support local arts and cultural projects.

Member for Mallee Andrew Broad has congratulated GrampianArts, ACT Natimuk and Rose Ertler on their successful applications which will see a diverse range of arts continue to be supported throughout the Wimmera Mallee.

“The Regional Arts Fund is designed to support arts and cultural projects and opportunities that offer skills development,” Mr Broad said.

“It’s great to see the government supporting the arts in our region, and now we'll see three different projects in Halls Gap, Natimuk, and Mildura.”

The GrampianArts project titled Bush Dyeing has been offered a $3000 quick response grant. Under Round 1 of the Australian Government Regional Arts Fund Program 2017, ACT Natimuk has been offered $15,000 for their project titled Possible Not, and Rose Ertler has been offered $13,008 for new interactive work called Insultations to be developed at the Museum of Innocence in Mildura.

The Regional Arts Fund is an initiative of the Federal Government’s regional arts program, aimed at giving all Australians better access to opportunities to practice and experience the arts. The Federal Government has determined the objectives and eligibility of the fund.
