The City of Boroondara offers a range of community and individual grants to support creative ideas, projects and events.
Annual Community Strengthening Grants
Annual Community Strengthening Grants are open to community groups working within Boroondara. They provide support for new, one-off projects and activities that strengthen Boroondara’s community.
The Annual Community Strengthening Grants includes a Creative Community stream which supports and encourages diverse arts and cultural programs, festivals, events and activities that enhance arts, culture and heritage across Boroondara.
Community Arts Venue Grants
The Community Arts Venue Grants program provides in-kind support for use of Boroondara’s two cultural venues: Hawthorn Arts Centre and Kew Court House. Boroondara-based community groups, organisations and individuals who meet the eligibility criteria are invited to apply. The grants program is offered throughout the financial year until all the funding is sufficiently allocated and acquitted.
See Community Arts Venue Grants for eligibility criteria and application guidelines.
