The Country Arts Support Program (CASP) is a Create NSW initiative that aims to build a creative, vibrant and resilient NSW arts and cultural sector. It provides small grants, between $3,000 - $5,000, to local arts and community organisations in regional NSW for projects that will take place in 2018.
