Money for art
Nine arts projects in the Northern Rivers region have received funding from the Country Arts Support Program (CASP).
CASP is a key regional arts funding program for NSW, which provides support to employ artists in locally initiated arts and cultural projects. The aim is to provide access to arts activities for small communities, to encourage communities to work together on cultural projects, to foster cultural diversity in the regions and to ensure that regional and rural areas have an artistic voice.
This year there were 40 applications for funding received from across every local government area, with a total request of some $92,000.
The full list of NSW CASP projects for 2007 is available on the Regional Arts NSW website at www.regionalartsnsw.com.au.
