The City of Melbourne announced an additional $2.7 million worth of funding to be split between 31 different artistic organisations over the next two years, thanks to the Triennial Arts Grants Program 2015-17. This could be great news if you're a creative type living in Carnegie real estate to continue contributing to the city's continually developing vibrancy and culture depth.
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle said arts was an important aspect of Melbourne that should be supported to maintain the city's status.
"Melbourne is the most liveable city in the world and our arts and culture credentials are a major contributor to that liveability. Our renowned reputation as a cultural capital did not happen by accident, it is a result of careful planning, strategy and investment," said Mayor Doyle in a 26 August statement.
Some of the organisations that will be receiving funding include the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Polyglot Theatre, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Craft Victoria and the Emerging Writers' Festival.
