More than $600,000 awarded to multicultural grassroots festivals and events


The NSW Government announced the 81 community organisations across NSW that were successful participants of the Multicultural NSW Stronger Together Festival and Event Grant program.

These community organisations will share in more than $630,000 to host grassroots festivals and events over the next 8 months.

The Festival and Event Grants Program invests in communities and celebrates cultural diversity across NSW as a precious part of our identity and way of life in one of the most diverse States in the world.

This round of the program will see organisations such as Dubbo’s Oriscon, the Albury Wodonga Ethnic Communities Council and Mt Druitt’s St Mary’s Ethiopian Women’s Association hold festivals and events that engage with a broad range of communities.

The Festival and Events Grants range from $5000 to $15,000.
