New funding to welcome back live performances

As the city emerges from lockdown, City of Newcastle has announced the return of its ‘Locally Made and Played Grant’ program with funding available to showcase talented local artists and incentivise venues to host live performances.


Venues are invited to apply for up to $1500 in grant funding to host live music, comedy or micro-theatre style performances. The funds will be used to support individual performers and artists at $300 per performance.

Deputy Lord Mayor Declan Clausen said with restrictions easing, now is the perfect time to start activating the city and welcoming back live music and performances.
