The NSW Artists’ Grant has been initiated by NAVA to assist professional visual and media arts, craft and design practitioners residing in NSW to produce, present and promote their work throughout NSW, interstate and overseas. Funds for the scheme have been made available by Arts NSW specifically to encourage the undertaking of creative and cost-effective initiatives. These funds are to assist directly with the costs associated with the development and implementation of a project plan, for example: the production of new creative work; presentation in a venue; travel or freight; technical assistance; preparation and distribution of a portfolio; market research; building contacts; creating and maintaining a database; setting up a website, and/or a publicity campaign.
