Creative Yarra Grants

Creative Yarra Grants 2017-2019

In September 2016, Council endorsed the recommendations of the Yarra Arts Advisory Committee (YAARTS) for the Creative Yarra and Celebrate Grants 2017-2019.

In the Celebrate Yarra grants, $510,000 over three years has been committed to ten organisations and two individual artists to provide dynamic and valuable arts and cultural activities in the City of Yarra. The proposed activities are each of high cultural and artistic merit and demonstrate a strong link with Yarra’s community.

34 applications were received in 2016 with the final outcomes recommended by the YAARTS and endorsed by Council.

The ten successful organisations and two artists to be funded over the next three years are:

The Gertrude Projection Association     

Melbourne Fringe          

Polyglot Theatre              

The Village Festival of New Performance             

Circus Oz
