Applications are now open for the 2017-2018 Arts Partnership Initiative.
Council is seeking interest from individual artists and arts organisations, for the 2017-2018 Arts Partnership Initiative which aim to create new partnerships that enable inclusive artistic collaborations within Darebin. The Arts Partnership Initiative contributes to a key ambition of the Creative Darebin Arts Strategy 2014-2020 to increase access and meaningful participation in the arts for priority communities.
The Arts Partnership Initiative also responds to Council’s ambitions to be:
- Thriving: a city where the arts have genuine impact for everyone and has great conditions for creativity and community to thrive through the arts.
- Connected: provide options for different communities to connect with each other through art, and for multiple generations within and across communities to participate in shared activities together
- Enterprising: Attracting artists and creative businesses to live and work within Darebin.
