Cultures shine through city’s diverse community grants

Thanks to a grant from the City of Hobart, Juana Cambas and her fellow Argentinian dancers brought their dazzling cultural showcase to Hobart Town Hall.

“Our showcase, which includes Argentinian music, dancing and food, has allowed us to connect with the people of Hobart through our culture,” Ms Cambas said.

“Our first showcase was an incredible success. We had more than 200 people in attendance and it was such a fun night.

“I would encourage anyone to apply for a grant from the city, they have been so helpful in organising and promoting our event and I am incredibly grateful for their support.”

The City of Hobart community, creative, events and heritage grant applications range from $1000 to $20,000.

Hobart Mayor Anna Reynolds said the grants supported projects that enriched and enhanced the cultural fabric of the city.

“These grants play an important role in building our city’s future and reflect our commitment to fostering creativity, community engagement and cultural preservation within Hobart,” she said.

“We recognise the invaluable contributions of our local organisations and we’re thrilled to support their efforts through these funding opportunities.

“We encourage all eligible organisations and groups to take advantage of these opportunities. Together we can continue to make Hobart a vibrant, inclusive and culturally rich city for all.”

Application close on 18 March and are available at www.hobartcity.com.au/grants
