The Australian Government is inviting organisations to apply for Multicultural Arts and Festivals funding for events to be held between 1 July 2016 and 30 June 2017. Up to $5,000 is available for each project that provides opportunities for Australians of all backgrounds to come together and experience different cultural traditions.
The Strengthening Communities Activity aims to strengthen communities and promote inclusion and participation of disadvantaged people in community life. Multicultural Arts and Festivals (MAF) grants are aimed at building cohesive Australian communities. They do so by providing opportunities for Australians of all backgrounds to come together and experience different cultural traditions, including through multicultural arts and festival projects.
