The NSW Government has announced a $50 million rescue and restart package for NSW arts and cultural organisations to ensure the sector continues to make an important contribution to the NSW economy during and after the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Rescue and Restart package is intended to support arts and cultural organisations across NSW.
The Rescue and Restart package will be delivered in two stages:
- Immediate funding available to offset the impacts of temporary closure to comply with Public Health Orders, and
- Funding available in the coming months to enable organisations to restart operations when public health requirements permit.
Funding will be available to NSW not-for-profit arts and cultural organisations across the State on a case by case basis.
The Rescue and Restart package is designed to assist NSW arts and cultural organisations now, and so they are in a position to restart operations when health guidelines permit.
To find out more about the Arts and Cultural Rescue and Restart Package, you’ll initially need to email the Sector Support team at Create NSW.
