The list we provide here gives information about project grants for organisations. It also includes, but is not limited to, M&G NSW devolved grants for Volunteer Initiated Museums (VIMs) and the Curatorial Support Initiative and Artist & Curator Residency programs, which are awarded to regional public galleries, art spaces and Aboriginal cultural centres.

If you were looking for something else, don't despair, we can still point you in the right direction!

  • Arts NSW is the primary arts funding organisation in NSW
  • Regional Arts NSW has a wide range of support programs for those outside the major cities
  • NAVA is the place to go for visual artist grants and support
  • Australia Council is the place to go for general organisational funding and individual artists grants across all artforms. 


Good luck!
