Volunteer Travel and Registration Fund | Open
This fund is to support regional individuals who are active volunteers in the arts in Western Australia. Funding will cover your registration and/or travel expenses for the 2017 WA Regional Arts Summit. Support for this program is from Lotterywest.
The 2017 WA Regional Arts Summit is an initiative of Country Arts WA in partnership with the Mandurah Performing Arts Centre and the City of Mandurah. Country Arts WA presents a combined conference and arts festival event every four years in a different region of Western Australia.
The Summit commences at 4.30pm on Thursday 12 October and finishes at lunchtime on Sunday 15 October 2017.
Regional individuals wishing to attend the WA Regional Arts Summit can apply for funding up to $1,500 to assist with travel costs and registration fee.
There is limited funding available. Applications will be assessed within one week of submitting. The fund will remain open until 26 September 2017 or until the funding is exhausted.
Before beginning your application, we strongly recommend reading the Volunteer Registration and Travel Guidelines and contacting a Country Arts WA Project Officer to discuss your application.
The Volunteer Travel Assistance Fund can cover travel (airfares, train, road travel) to and from the applicant’s ordinary residence to Mandurah, accommodation en route to Mandurah in the event the journey takes more than one day and the early bird registration fee.
Please note: this fund does not include accommodation in Mandurah for the duration of the Summit.
The fund will remain open until 26 September 2017 or until the funding is exhausted.
