CHANCE FOR ARTISTS

13 May 2013

CHANCE FOR ARTISTS Image

The City of Melbourne is giving individual artists the opportunity to shine with its 2014 Arts Grants program officially opening this month.

With applications for grants open until June 17, the council was encouraging new ideas and any artists from any art form to apply.

Councillor Rohan Leppert said the arts remained as important as ever to the City of Melbourne and its creative scene.

“Melbourne’s fantastic arts and culture scene isn’t an accident – it takes commitment and investment,” Cr Leppert said.

“The annual arts program has been an important source of funding for artists and organisations for over 16 years. We welcome new ideas that enliven the city and engage, challenge and excite our residents, workers and visitors,” he added.

Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said the work that had been produced from previous grants had been integral to the art community within the city.

“From film and visual art, to dance, literature and music events, I am continually impressed with the calibre of arts grants recipients. I encourage people to get online and find out more about how they can be involved in the 2014 program,” Cr Doyle said.
