ANZAC Centenary arts and culture funds available

Individuals, organisations and groups in Pearce are invited to apply for funding under a $2million Anzac Centenary Arts and Culture Fund Public Grants Program.

Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, said the Coalition Government was looking for high quality, creative projects to commemorate the service and sacrifice of Australians in all war efforts.

“Next year marks the Centenary of the First World War and we want all generations to explore and understand the ANZAC legacy,” Mr Porter said.

“The Centenary of the ANZAC is one of the most significant periods of commemoration in Australia’s history.

“This funding provides individuals and organisations in Pearce an opportunity to create arts and cultural projects that engage local communities in the commemoration.”

Grants of up to $50,000 for artists, organisations and community groups are available for a wide range of arts and culture projects.

Applicants are encouraged to read the guidelines at www.arts.gov.au/anzac before applying. Applications close at 5.00pm AEST on Wednesday 10 September 2014.
