$20k grants available for new events on the Tweed

The New South Wales Government is offering grants of up to $20,000 to help individuals and groups on the Tweed put together “innovative new events”.

The funding is through the Incubator Event Fund and is aimed at helping event organisers through their initial establishment phase. It can also go towards event staging costs, marketing, publicity and research.

Funding is available to organisers who are staging an event for the first or second time between July and December this year (2017).


NSW Minister for Tourism and Major Events Adam Marshall said rural and regional events were a wonderful celebration of community culture.

“They are often run by locals and showcasing local producers, artists, craftspeople, sportspeople and musicians,” Mr Marshall said.

Applications must be made through the Destination NSW website by Sunday 2 April 2017.
