Creative Communities - Festival grants
This program aims to strengthen community festival activities across the municipality and in doing so, celebrate the diverse and unique communities within the City of Greater Geelong.
Grants are available to groups seeking to develop small to moderate sized festivals which celebrate local or community identity, provide a diverse range of arts activities in accessible locations, and enrich the cultural life of the Geelong community.
Before you apply, it is important to be sure that your event meets our criteria as a 'Community Festival' as opposed to an arts project, major event or other type of gathering. See the Festivals guideline to check if you are eligible.
Applications for 2019/20 open on Friday 7 June 2019 and close at 5.00 p.m. on Friday 2 August 2019.
All applicants must attend a free information session to be eligible.
How to apply:
Applicants must read the grant guidelines and then discuss their application with our Arts and Culture Department before starting any online application form. Call 03 5272 4703.
