The Country Arts Support Program (CASP) is small grants for small locally initiated arts projects. Apply for up to $3000 for a project in your community.
Projects funded in the past have included (but are not limited to) workshops, performances, art making events, artist-in-residence programs, exhibitions, community seminars, public art and arts-based additions to festivals.
Who can apply: incorporated organisations, local government entities, groups/ ensembles auspiced by an incorporated association, school P&Cs. You don't have to be an arts-based organisation to apply. When is the funding for: projects happening January-December 2016. What can the funding be spent on: the main focus of CASP is for artists fees and expenses.
*It's a requirement of CASP that applicants discuss their project first with their regional arts organisation. In the NSW Central West this is Arts OutWest. If you're elsewhere in the statelook up your local organisation.
