Culture is central to community

Council grants encouraging diverse cultural activities.

Parkes Shire Council recognises that a robust cultural life is important to the health and wellbeing of any community, including the role it plays in attracting and retaining residents.

Parkes Shire Council's Cultural Grants Program was developed to stimulate and encourage creative and innovative cultural activity, assist in the development of skills and abilities, enhance cultural facilities and boost community awareness of the importance of culture.

Annually organisations may apply for a grant of at least $2,000, with the total funding pool at $10,000.
