We are thrilled to be a successful recipient of a Federal Government Building Better Regions grant, to deliver a new initiative: Arts ACTION. This grant will enable us to continue our work in supporting artists/creatives to be viable businesses and contribute to the growth of the Central Victorian Creative Community.
