Locally Made and Played - Supporting Local Businesses and Performers

City of Newcastle (CN) is proud to announce that it will be offering a small grant round to incentivise Live Performance in venues around the city during the month of December to support some of the hardest hit sectors of our community. Applications open on the 14 October and close 29 October 2021.

CN will provide incentives of $300 per performance between 1 December to 20 December 2021. Venues can apply for up to three separate incentives. We will be looking for a variety of performers, not just music but also dancers, comedians, poets, hulla hoopers and any other performers.

This grant opportunity directly delivers on the objectives of CN's Economic Development Strategy, Newcastle After Dark Strategy and Live Music Strategy.

To determine eligibility for this incentive, please read the Locally Made and Played Guidelines (PDF). Applications are now closed.
