Local Arts Organisations Receive Funding
Two regional Lachlan organisations have received a total of $9,250 from the NSW Government to complete an important arts and cultural infrastructure project.
Member for Barwon Kevin Humphries said funds had gone to the Condobolin and District Historical Society and Lachlan Arts Council to develop and improve their facilities.
Condobolin and District Historical Society will receive $7,250 to install air conditioning units in the Condobolin Museum ensuring a better environment both for visitors to the museum and to protect museum artefacts.
A further $2,000 will go to the Lachlan Arts Council to install new display and lighting systems in the Condobolin Community Centre to enhance the display of artworks.
“Right here, where it is needed, this regional capital funding is supporting important small-scale infrastructure projects that maintain our resources and facilities and build community participation in our arts and cultural activities,” said Mr Humphries.
“This funding category encourages collaboration and partnerships here in the regions, with NSW Government support being matched on a dollar-for-dollar basis with other funding from local government, community groups and organisations.”
Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said the NSW Government is investing in regional cultural organisation across the state.
“Across NSW, the Government is helping to revitalise arts and cultural facilities, including performing arts centres, galleries, museums and community centres, ensuring people can experience diverse activities regardless of where they live,” Mr Grant said.
“Improving access to cultural activities, particularly in regional NSW, is a priority of this Government and is identified as an area of investment under our 10-year policy framework, Create in NSW.”
