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.

In response to the evolving situation posed by Covid-19, The City of Hobart has released a further $160,000 of funding support through our Resilient Hobart Grants stream, with $100,000 of this dedicated to creative projects.

Resilient Hobart Grants are provided to support community and cultural organisations and groups, creative practitioners and other members of the community to deliver projects that provide tangible support for the community to respond to and recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 virus. These grants are currently open and will close on the 25th of May 2020.

Our usual Creative Hobart Grants are offered in 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.
