Each year, the City of Kingston invites individual artists, not for profit arts groups and organisations to apply for an Arts Grant as part of the wider Community Grants Program.

The Arts Grants program supports a diverse range of artists, arts practice, organisations and arts activity and projects must have a public outcome.

If you missed the application due date this year, please keep an eye on the Kingston Arts website for future opportunities. 



Who can apply?

If you are applying as an individual or group, you must be a practicing artist or arts worker and an Australian citizen or permanent resident.

You may not apply for a grant if you received a grant, or administered a grant, from the City of Kingston in the past and that grant has not been satisfactorily acquitted.

Grant categories

Artists, not for profit art groups and organisations can apply for an Arts Grant across four categories:

  • Community Arts $3,000
  • Youth Arts Internships $3,000
  • Arts and Cultural Tourism $5,000
  • Sharing Cultures $5,000

  • creativity, innovation and originality
  • capacity to deliver the concept
