Art Grants

NEST IS ALL ABOUT INSPIRING CREATIVITY AND CONNECTING WITH OTHERS. WE’RE ENCOURAGING THIS BY OFFERING GRANTS IN THREE AREAS THIS YEAR

Grant Types

ART PROJECTS

Large or small, we want to hear if you have an idea you want to bring to Nest, but don’t have sufficient funding to create it. In a change from the last couple of years, we are looking at art projects separately to theme camps.

Apply under this section for funding of art that sits outside of ‘infrastructure’ needs.

COMMUNITY PROJECTS

We love the number and diversity of workshops, performances and activities that get brought to Nest, and we want to encourage as many as possible.

Apply under this section for funding of the cost of materials you need to make your community project happen.

Available Funding

This year, there is no hard and fast rule on what percentage of the total cost of your project Nest will contribute (previously it has been capped at 75%). The application will ask you for the total cost of your project, and the amount you are asking Nest to contribute.

Please remember that we have a limited budget, so we may offer less than you ask for. Don’t let it put you off applying! For selected projects, the full amount could be reimbursed, therefore we encourage you to tell us why you require full funding if you request it.
