FRANKSTON Arts Centre has enhanced its commitment to our arts community with artist grants now open to inspire, nurture and energise our creatives.
North East Ward Cr Suzette Tayler said the Artist Project Grants – proudly supported by Frankston City Council – are now open to artists and creatives living, working or with strong connections to Frankston City.
Cr Tayler said: “This is a brilliant opportunity to bring a creative project to life. If you have an innovative idea and the capacity to deliver upon your vision we’d love you to apply.
“Frankston City Council has continued its commitment to support COVID 19 recovery initiatives as part of its $9.128 million Recovery Package and is proud to support local artists to create work that contributes to our vibrancy, culture and community,” Cr Tayler said.
Up to $5,000 will be awarded to six local artists for Artist Project Grants and submissions close on Friday 27 August 2021. For more information, please visit thefac.com.au.
Alison Tedesco, who received an Artist Program Grant of up to $4000 in 2020, said the recognition and acknowledgement had provided a huge boost, adding: “It’s certainly been a wonderful blessing as an artist to be supported and encouraged by some amazing facilitators within Frankston City Council.
“It has given me a clear direction in my practice, exposed me to invaluable contacts for further art projects and bolstered my passion to continue the journey as a practicing urban landscape artist living in Frankston,” Ms Tedesco said.
