Creative Young Stars Program applications close on Friday

A reminder that the first round applications for the Creative Young Stars Program close on Friday 21 June

This program is to encourage, support and celebrate the achievements of young people. Through this program, financial assistance is made available to participate in activities, events or training in a range of areas, but with a special focus on the arts.

The Government recognizes the passion for creativity amongst young people in this country, and its expression in the visual artists, as writers or musicians, in film, theatre and circus, as well as amongst our dedicated arts administrators.

Here in Lingiari electorate, over 2 rounds per year, 23 grants of $500 are being made available for individuals, and 4 grants of $3000 are being offered for group projects. Are you needing financial help to participate in a competition, to attend a skills camp, maybe to participate in an eisteddfod?

For this first round, 12 individual grants and 2 group grants are available to help you develop your skills.

The Creative Young Stars Program is a Federal Government program.
