DoubleMask Drama received CASP funding in 2012. It was run as part of the Tyalgum Classical Music Festival and provided young theatre students opportunities to perform, create and manage various aspects of production.
Do you have an arts concept you would like to see become a reality but can’t afford the funds to get it off the ground?
Arts Northern Rivers has announced that Country Arts Support Program (CASP) funding is now available for local arts events and projects taking place in the northern rivers during 2014.
CASP provides small grants up to $3,000 for workshops, artist-in-residence programs, public art and design projects, performances and other local arts initiatives.
Applications are open to incorporated not-for-profit arts and community organisations, local government authorities, tertiary institutions (for community-based projects only) and P&C committees for community projects involving school students.
In 2013, nine northern rivers organisations received CASP funding, including Coutts Crossing Public School Centenary Committee, Maclean/Grafton Aboriginal Communities Justice Group, New Italy Museum Inc, and Northern Rivers Conservatorium Arts Centre Inc.
This time around, Arts Northern Rivers is particularly interested in receiving applications for projects by and for young people.
CASP applications close 1 October 2013, and applicants will be advised of the outcome of their application by November/December 2013.
