Community Arts and Cultural Development (arts organisations)

Community Arts and Cultural Development (arts organisations) is one of three programs to be delivered as part of the $1 million Community Arts and Cultural Development Fund.

This initiative supports Tasmanian arts organisations to partner with communities to develop and deliver community arts and cultural development (CACD) activities with and for communities.

These activities should be focused on developing meaningful and relevant work through inclusive collaborations with artists and community members.

Activities should also benefit Tasmanian artists and arts workers.
