Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the funding will help Cementa to deliver a program of residencies, workshops, internships, forums and special projects throughout 2016.
“Mid-Western Regional Council area has emerged as a hub of artistic talent and passion and I am thrilled the NSW Government is contributing this level of assistance,” Mr Toole said.
“I am proud that within a regional area both artistic and theatrical pursuits in Kandos are to receive funding to support the innovative and high quality arts and cultural programs they are renowned for.”
Deputy Premier and Minister for the Arts Troy Grant said the government is proud to provide funding for a diverse range of programs that will further enrich the state’s dynamic arts and cultural sector.
“This funding is a key commitment under the government’s new Create in NSW 10-year policy framework to extend the reputation of NSW as the leading state for arts and culture, while supporting job creation and the visitor economy,” Mr Grant said.
“The NSW Government is committed to providing people with access to a diverse range of arts and cultural experiences, no matter where they live.”
