MORE FUNDING TO CELEBRATE OUR MULTICULTURAL COMMUNITIES

NORTHERN Tablelands MP Adam Marshall has today announced that state government funding is now available for events that help bring communities together and celebrate the region’s cultural diversity.

 

The 2015/16 Multicultural NSW Celebration Grants provide funding of up to $5,000 for festivals and events that bring communities together, showcase the benefits of cultural diversity and promote social cohesion.

 

“There are so many reasons to celebrate our region’s rich cultural diversity,” Mr Marshall said.

 

“The Celebration Grants are about supporting those important events as well as spreading important messages about cultural harmony and cohesion.

 

“Our state and many communities in the Northern Tablelands are fine examples of how multicultural communities can work successfully.

 

“I encourage any non-for-profit community organisation or local council planning an event to consider applying.”

 

Last financial year, more than 100 local community events received funding under the Celebration Grants program.

 

“Our cultural diversity is something we should cherish and celebrate every day,” Mr Marshall said.

 

Only not- for-profit community organisations and local councils staging events for the entire community are eligible to apply.

 

Applications for this round close on 17 June 2016. Applications open three times a year.

 

Projects are assessed on how many people are likely to attend, whether the project will benefit intercultural understanding and be cost effective.
