Best of the arts
28 Feb 2018 Mansfield Courier, Mansfield VIC (General News) APPLICATIONS are now open for the State Governments Small Regional Presenters program to bring new shows, performances and festivals to Victorian communities. Jaclyn Symes (MLC, Northern Victoria) is encouraging local not-for-profit arts groups, arts societies, venues and councils to apply for a grant, and increase the range of cultural experiences available in regional Victoria. Grants of $1500 to $15,000 are now available to support a single show or live event, a series of shows or an annual program. The Small Regional Presenters program supports venues or presenters working on the ground to attract shows to their area. Northern Victoria is full of terrific venues and presenters who are passionate about bringing great theatre, music and other performances to local audiences and Labor will continue to support them, Ms Symes said. This program helps them attract the best shows and support local artists and creative organisations in our communities. Victoria is the creative state and regardless of where you live we are taking shows on the road. The Small Regional Presenters program is now open for applications.
