Making Spaces in Western Sydney

January 30, 2017

A new initiative by Arts NSW aims to create further opportunities for artists in Western Sydney. The Making Spaces program will promote and establish new areas for artists to develop and create works.

The $400,000 Making Spaces program is now open to applications from artists or organisations for grants of up to $60,000 over two years to activate work spaces for artists. Executive Director of Arts NSW Michael Brealey said the new program has been established to help local artists access new facilities in their communities and encourage partnerships to develop new spaces including pop ups, studios and offices.

Artists, property owners and managers, businesses and community organisations are encouraged to apply.

“Artists often lead the way in rethinking new and old spaces and transforming them into innovative work zones.”
