Infrastructure Grant for Waringarri Arts.
Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is thrilled to share the announcement by the Hon Amanda Rishworth MP, Minister for Social Services, that we have been granted $628,000 in federal funding to provide a pathway for community engagement, capacity building and skills training, delivering innovative employment and training opportunities in the cultural tourism sector and arts industries.
“Waringarri Arts is very happy to have received funding to develop infrastructure that will grow and sustain the art centre’s capacity to provide jobs and skill development opportunities for our people in arts and cultural enterprise.’’ Dora Griffiths, Waringarri Arts Chairperson.
Funds are being distributed as part of the Community-led Solutions Economic Development (CSED) Grant opportunity, which seeks to create sustainable employment opportunities through community-led infrastructure projects.
The Albanese Labor Government is investing funding to support job opportunities, economic development and promote self-determination and choice in former Cashless Debit Card program sites.
