Boost for Kyneton creatives

Kyneton Contemporary Inc. will receive a $38,000 grant for the development and presentation of the next Kyneton Contemporary Art Triennial – KCAT2021, which will commission new work by diverse artists, presented in a range of predominantly unconventional exhibition sites across Kyneton.
The project is among 40 recipients across the state to share in the latest round of the state government’s VicArts grants to boost Victorian creativity.
Macedon MP Mary-Anne Thomas said the grant, through Creative Victoria’s program, was part of the government’s ongoing work to strengthen the state’s $31 billion creative economy and support jobs in the creative sector.
Ms Thomas congratulated Kyneton Contemporary Inc. for being recognised among some of the state’s most exciting artists and creative companies.
“This grant demonstrates that the Macedon Ranges is a regional hub for people to grow and showcase their artistic talents,” she said.
Kyneton Contemporary Inc. co-directors Clare Needham and Kent Wilson said they were thrilled to have secured the funding.
“As a non-profit, volunteer-run organisation, Kyneton Contemporary Inc. relies on a combination of government, business and private support to produce our triennial contemporary visual arts event.”
“This grant enables us to market the event and the creative energy of the region to broad national audiences.”
The VicArts Grants program offers one-off grants of $5000 to $20,000 to individual artists for solo creative projects, and funding of up to $60,000 to enable small arts and community organisations to deliver large-scale projects and programs.
