Third batch has $136,000 grants from Culture, Heritage and Arts Regional Tourism program to deliver support to creative and cultural sector
Morrison government's funding support for the creative and cultural sector through Culture, Heritage and Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) program.
The Morrison Government continues to deliver record support to the creative and cultural sector, with 47 new projects across regional and remote Australia sharing in more than $136,000 under the third batch of grants from the $3 million Culture, Heritage and Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) program. Minister for Communications, Urban Infrastructure, Cities and the Arts, the Hon Paul Fletcher MP, said these grants will support activities that encourage cultural tourism in regional, rural and remote Australia.
Federal Member for Monash, Russell Broadbent said the funding flowing from the CHART program will assist regional communities and economies to re-emerge from the pandemic
Delivering projects and support
Minister Fletcher said, "The CHART program promotes participation in, and access to, Australia's arts and culture through developing and supporting cultural expression and sharing stories of community and historical significance."
"We're pleased to have delivered more than $500,000 for 178 projects across the country, supporting the reactivation and ongoing sustainability of these successful applicants, each playing an integral role in telling the stories of their local communities and preserving Australia's cultural heritage." Minister Fletcher also said.
Helping the community recovery
Funding from the CHART program will assist Phillip Island Cemetery Trust to install signs for the cemetery, Trafalgar Holden Museum to install reverse cycle air conditioning and Wonthaggi & District Historical Society to develop a touch screen display exhibit at the museum.
"Offering appealing cultural tourism experiences in our regional communities is more important than ever following two years of disruption, which is why the Australian Government continues to lend a helping hand in the recovery of community-run arts and cultural organisations," Mr Broadbent said.
Apply for a grant now
Mr Broadbent also said, "I encourage arts, cultural and heritage organisations in Monash to apply for a CHART program grant today, which will support rebuilding local economies and preserve Australia's cultural heritage in regional areas."
The CHART program is administered by the Australian Museums and Galleries Association (AMaGA) on behalf of the Government. Applications are open until 29 April 2022, or until funding is allocated, whichever comes first.
