New Art - Community Support Package

Provided as part of the Hobsons Bay COVID-19 Community Support Package, New Art is a new funding stream that will celebrate and support the local arts; our creatives, artists, and community by creatively activating spaces and precincts across the city.

The New Art funding pool is $90,000 in total. Funding is suited to large or small scale outcomes. Up to $30,000 (ex. GST) is available per project. 

Projects can be events, art installations, lighting projects (season dependent), permanent art projects and or creative infrastructure projects. The aim will be to have new creative projects for people to engage with, experience, and enjoy. 

New Art EOIs have closed - stay tuned to hear about the exciting new projects that have been selected. 


New Art is enabled through Council’s COVID-19 Community Support Package to provide new opportunities for the creative sector and to celebrate local neighbourhoods and precincts across the city. It is presented as part of Creative City Hobsons Bay.
