Project Details

The Celebrate Together Grants provide one-off funding annually to eligible multicultural organisations for festivals and events, which celebrate multiculturalism and diversity and support an inclusive and cohesive society. 

Grants will be awarded through one funding round in 2019-20.

There are two categories of grants under the Celebrate Together Grants. Large Grants of up to $30,000 and Small Grants of up to $5,000 are available to eligible multicultural organisations for festivals and events to be delivered within 12 months, commencing in July 2019.

Multicultural Affairs will only accept up to two applications for the Celebrate Together Grants per organisation – for one Large Grant and one Small Grant – per year. 

Applications for 2019-20 funding closed on 17 May 2019. Applicants are expected to be notified in late July 2019.
