Have you got a community art project that needs funding?
Well, if you’ve not started already, it’s time to get cracking on those Catalyst Community Arts Fund applications.

The March round closes 30 March, however, if you want one-on-one feedback on your application, you’ll need to get it to us before 16 March.

The Catalyst Community Arts Fund is managed by CAN on behalf of the State Government of Western Australia through the Department of Culture and the Arts.

There are 3 categories:

A – Innovate – up to $15,000

For projects that demonstrate new and innovative community arts practices.

B – Create – up to $15,000

For community arts projects that express local culture and identity.

C – Develop – up to $10,000

For community artists and cultural development workers to gain professional development or research.

CAN is particularly keen to receive applications for projects that work with culturally and linguistically diverse (CaLD) communities.

For more information: or contact us on or 9226 2422
