20 regional arts projects funded

Albury City Council, Mackay Regional Council and King Island Council are among the recipients of 20 regional arts projects that have secured new funding from the Commonwealth Government.

Festivals Australia has distributed more than $550,000 in its latest round of funding for projects across regional and remote communities for art forms including visual art and craft, dance and music.

“Festivals reflect the shared culture and experience of a community, and art is an important component of that,” Minister for Communications, Cyber Safety and the Arts, Paul Fletcher, said.

“The supported arts projects will be drawcards for tourists and help celebrate communities and their stories.”

Here are details about all the latest recipients from round nine.
