The NSW Government is seeking applications for cultural infrastructure projects that will
benefit audiences and improve access to arts and cultural facilities across NSW.

Minister for the Arts Ben Franklin said the Minor Works and Equipment Projects Round Two
grants, delivered through the Creative Capital program, demonstrate the NSW
Government’s commitment to invest in projects that reinforce the State’s position as the
leading arts and culture hub in Australia.

“We’re calling for applications for projects that will pay dividends for communities across
NSW by developing and upgrading fit-for-purpose cultural facilities such as museums,
theatres, performance spaces, galleries and Aboriginal Keeping Places and language
centres,” Mr Franklin said.

“Cultural equity is at the heart of the NSW Government’s Creative Capital program and
thanks to the $60 million investment – more projects like this can now realise their ambitions,
providing more people with access to world-class arts and culture, no matter where they live
in the state.”

“The people of NSW deserve a rich and diverse cultural offering and this funding will ensure
our museums, theatres, performance venues, galleries, libraries and Aboriginal Cultural
Centres, Keeping Places and language centres are fit-for-purpose and continue to present
quality arts and cultural experiences.”

Member for Manly James Griffin MP said that the people of Manly should take advantage of
the targeted cultural infrastructure funding and apply with ideas that will benefit the local

“This funding is an excellent opportunity for our community to develop and upgrade cultural
facilities in Manly, and I encourage everyone to put their ideas forward.” Mr Griffin said.
