City of Newcastle: Council Support for Arts and Cultural Organisations in Newcastle program

The City of Newcastle’s Council Support for Arts and Cultural Organisations in Newcastle program is now open.
The purpose of the funding program is to support not-for-profit arts and cultural organisations in Newcastle to be sustainable by supporting them to develop projects for the city.
The focus is on:


  • Enabling arts and cultural organisations to create and co-present arts and cultural programming with Council in a model that supports organisational sustainability;
  • Building professional relationships and capacity within organisations and;
  • Creating a funding base in a form that organisations can leverage with other funding providers.
There are two key stages in applying for support. Applicants initially submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) and then short-listed applicants are invited to submit a full project Proposal
The EOI opens today, Monday 3 July and closes Monday 31 July 2017.
In the 2017-2018 financial year the total cash and in-kind budget is $150,000 and a maximum of three organisations will enter into an agreement with Council. These agreements of up to three years will have annual milestones for the release of funds.
