  • Enabling arts and cultural organisations to create and co-present arts and cultural projects with City of Newcastle in a model that supports organisational sustainability
  • Building professional relationships and capacity
  • Creating a funding base in a form that organisations can leverage with other funding providers.
The project based funding opportunity involves up to three years funding on a 1+1+1 basis.
