2022 Arts & Creativity grants
The Northern Beaches has a thriving and diverse creative community and our local creative sector continues to evolve and grow.
The Arts & Creativity grants program supports this growth and developing an agile and sustainable sector. It does this by funding a range of projects, programs and activities providing opportunities for individual artists, cultural or creative workers, or arts organisations across all artforms.
This annual program focusses on projects and initiatives that deliver direct benefit to individuals and communities within the Northern Beaches local government area.
