Creative Hobart Grants

Creative Hobart supports cultural and creative programs that encourage community participation, attract cultural tourism and make Hobart a truly wonderful place to live, work and visit.

We have three grant categories that provide funding for eligible organisations and groups to deliver one-off activities involving artists and communities in the creation, direction and management of cultural projects. 

The projects must take place in the Hobart municipal area and contribute to Hobart as a creative city.

Our Major Cultural Organisations Grants assist eligible organisations with operational and ongoing program support.

All applications are assessed against assessment criteria. It is important to note that meeting all criteria does not guarantee that an application will be successful.
