Culture, Heritage and Arts Regional Tourism (CHART) Program
This grant aims to support community cultural, heritage and arts organisations in regional Australia as they recover from the impacts of COVID-19.
The CHART program promotes participation in, and access to, Australia’s arts and culture through developing and supporting cultural expression and sharing stories of community and historical significance. Community-run arts and cultural organisations – including community museums, galleries, and historical societies – will benefit from CHART program funding. The program will support these organisations to continue to offer appealing cultural tourism experiences to visitors, which in turn will enhance local expenditure.
