Marino invites artists to apply for Festivals Australia funding

Member for Forrest Nola Marino is inviting South West artists, arts workers and organisations to apply for Festivals Australia funding.

“This program funds festivals, parades and community celebrations in regional and remote areas,” she said.

“I encourage organisations with the capacity to deliver events to apply for funding.

“This is a terrific opportunity to plan high quality arts experiences for people in the South West.”

Mrs Marino said the program provided wider exposure for Australian artists and new sights for audiences.

“Festivals Australia funding ensures regional and remote audiences have access to high quality artistic experiences where they live,” she said.

Applications for this funding round close on Friday October 20.
