There is a lot of FUNDING opportunities OPEN at the moment, to aid our creatives to survive during the current COVID-19 restrictions that are in place, which have devastated the creative industries. We get it that you may be confused, as to which fund/s you could be applying for and the age-old Border issue is very tricky with Victoria & NSW releasing very different funding streams in response to COVID-19. So, in an attempt to help, we will be delivering two FREE FUNDING FORUMS, via ZOOM, on Thursday 7 May 2020. We will cover the many grants OPEN at the moment and break down the criteria, eligibility and what kind of proposals will be more likely to be successful in receiving funding. We will also give some grant writing tips and there will be many opportunities to ask questions. The forum is for independent artists, collectives and organisations who live work and connect with the Murray Arts footprint (AlburyCity, Greater Hume, Federation, Wodonga, Indigo & Towong). Please sign up via Eventbrite and we will send out the ZOOM link and password, closer to the Forum you sign up for. Note: both Forums will be delivering exactly the same content, so you only need to attend one.
