Please note submissions for the 18/19 year have closed, but if you are looking for funding for a project, get in touch with us and we can provide advice on other sources. Do you have a creative project you'd like to undertake over the next twelve months?
The Albert-Eden Local Board, through the community arts broker programme, provides support for a range of community-based creative projects and submissions for projects are now open.
We are looking for locally based / connected people and organisations to submit ideas for creative projects that happen in and with local communities. Previous projects have included temporary sculptural installations in parks and cafes, dance performances in supermarkets, radio broadcasts created in schools, street performances, a story told via social media, exhibitions in retail areas, and lots more, so a wide variety of projects are welcomed.
The arts broker programme can provide funding and other project support in a number of ways, from assistance navigating Council processes to writing a press release - let's talk about what you might need to make the project happen.
The project must take place in the Albert-Eden area* between August 2018 and June 2019.
To submit a proposal, please send through: - an outline of your idea including: what it is, who's involved, when you plan to do it, and what the community involvement or outcomes are. One - two pages of information should be enough! - a budget - any supporting images you may have (optional)
Your project must: - have a strong creative idea driving it - give equal weight to how the project benefits local communities - have strong local connections Proposals are due by 10pm on June 22nd and should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you'd like support putting your proposal documents together, or need to submit in another way apart from email, get in touch and we can work with you on this.
Previous funding amounts have ranged from $250 - $12,000, with most projects within the $1000 - $6000 range.
