Creative Communities COVID-19 Recovery Program: Artist-in-Residence Projects

The DLGSC and Lotterywest Creative Communities COVID-19 Recovery Program provides funding for artist-in-residence projects that engage communities and are delivered in partnership with artists and either a local government authority, local school, not-for-profit community organisations or not-for-profit community services organisations.

The Creative Communities – Residency category provides for short term artist-in-residence projects that run for a minimum of four weeks.

The program prioritises projects that engage children and their families, and young people in communities who:

  • are experiencing high levels of social, health and/or economic impacts due to COVID-19
  • have limited or low access to arts and cultural programs
  • are located in regional or remote Western Australia
  • reflect the diversity of the State.

Projects should embrace community-based arts practice by ensuring:

  • the activities are by, with, and for the community
  • the artists are highly skilled art form practitioners and facilitators
  • the activities are appropriate and reflect the community’s aspirations.

Applications to the Creative Communities – Residency program are open year-round. For more information, please visit DLGSC’s website.
