At the recent GP Arts Inc General Meeting we learned from Kim Biggs, Council’s Arts and Culture Advisor, about a number of funding opportunities open to artists living in the Golden Plains Shire. One of those is the Quick Response Professional Development Grant, intended to assist Golden Plains professional artists to take up professional development or small project opportunities at short notice. 

This can include reimbursement of registration fees or associated costs, or towards the purchase of program resources relating to an applicant’s participation in:

  • Cultural or heritage conferences;
  • Professional or skills development programs;
  • Arts mentorships; or
  • Residencies.

The grant program is open to applications on an ongoing basis until all funds are expended, with applicants able to apply for amounts of up to $500.

If you have any questions, or need to discuss your application prior to submitting, please contact Council’s Arts and Culture Advisor at 5220 7212 or email
