July 8th, 2022Funding for artists
CENTRAL Highlands’ artists and creative organisations are invited to hit the road and take their performances, exhibitions and events across regional and outer-metropolitan Victoria.
Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas has called for applications for the Touring Victoria program which provides grants of between $10,000 and $250,000 to support tours by Victorian arts and cultural organisations and creatives.
The most recent round of grants supported regional tours from acts including singer Kutcha Edwards, all-female circus-comedy show Trash Test Dummies, The Australian Ballet, Finucane and Smith and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra.
The 2022 round of the program will support touring activity that hits the road from November 1 this year.
Ms Thomas said Touring Victoria was supporting the creative community “to hit the road and re-connect with audiences across the state, delivering the cultural experiences that make Victoria our nations cultural heartland”.
“Touring Victoria not only brings amazing gigs and experiences to Macedon, it supports our local creatives to present their work, build their audiences and bring visitors from across the state.”
Applications close on July 14.
