My Place Grants
Council are excited to launch our new place activation initiative – My Place. The program will help successful applicants bring their creative, fun and innovative ideas to life through small grants and resource support.
The projects supported will take on the philosophy of ‘lighter, quicker, cheaper’, understanding that big change and impact is possible with these kind of projects that prototype and test new ideas.
Applications open 25 September to 23 October 2017
Grants between $500 and $8,000 are available.
Projects may include, but not be limited to:
- Activities: workshops, street performance, community dinner/picnic or street games.
- Creative projects: activating vacant shopfronts, temporary/semi-permanent art projects, projections on buildings
- Lighter, quicker, cheaper construction: small infrastructure temporary, art installations, creative lighting, decorations, pop up parklet, prototyping new ideas and furniture.
- Greening/environmental: temporary garden beds, pop up gardens or planting
