Arts and culture organisations in the Illawarra and South Coast have been given a boost with a share of $100 million in funding from the state government.

Minister for the Arts Don Harwin made the announcement at Shoalhaven City Art Centre on Saturday morning.

Arts, culture and Indigenous organisations can apply for grants to help with equipment, operations, projects to revitalise communities and economies and large scale projects like cultural infrastructure.

“We recognise the social, cultural and economic value of the arts and their recreational and educational importance,” Member for Kiama Gareth Ward said.

“I encourage local libraries, arts centres, halls or artists of any medium to apply.”

Expressions of Interest for the Regional Cultural Fund will open from 17 July 2017. Successful projects will be invited to provide additional information.
