Cultural Celebration Grants 2023/2024

Glenorchy City Council wants to empower organisations to design and deliver events to celebrate cultural diversity and strengthen community connection in the Glenorchy municipality.

Grants of up to $25,000 are available through Council’s Cultural Celebrations Grants Program.  Activities supported through the grants should aim to break down barriers by showcasing cultural diversity and welcome people from different cultures. Activities could include cultural events, musical performances, cultural demonstrations or workshops, food stalls or cultural cooking classes, etc.

Applications are open now until 31 March, or until the funding is expended.  Funded projects must be delivered within the Glenorchy local government area and be completed by 31st May 2024.
