The NSW Government announced the 81 community organisations across NSW that were successful participants of the Multicultural NSW Stronger Together Festival and Event Grant program.

These community organisations will share in more than $630,000 to host grassroots festivals and events over the next eight months.

The Festival and Event Grants program invests in communities and celebrates cultural diversity across NSW as a precious part of our identity and way of life in one of the most diverse States in the world.

This round of the program will see organisations such as Dubbo’s ORISCON, the Albury Wodonga Ethnic Communities Council and Mt Druitt’s St Mary’s Ethiopian Women’s Association hold festivals and events that engage with a broad range of communities.

The Festival and Events Grants range from $5,000 to $15,000.

“It doesn’t matter where you live or visit in NSW, there’s an opportunity to enjoy the many vibrant cultures of the diverse people that make up this great state.”
