Sharing stories community sponsorship fund



Sharing stories community sponsorship fund is a fund for projects that centre on inter-cultural dialogue. CAN WA is keen to support initiatives that enable communities to convey, verbally or otherwise, their cultural identity. The Sharing stories fund is underpinned by Healthway and Relationships Australia's Make time to talk message. Make time to talk recognises the positive mental and social effects of giving people the opportunity to tell their stories. Projects that focus on young and Indigenous people are encouraged.

Sharing stories offers up to $5000 towards arts projects that encourage community participation, creative expression and relationship building in a safe environment, with a particular focus on young people. It is available to communities located in the Wheatbelt, Goldfields, South West and Great Southern regions of Western Australia.

Projects should increase awareness of the use and benefits of arts and culture in tandem with health practices. Ideally, the focus of projects should be on increased communication and relationship skills within the community. Projects with long-term spin-off will be preferred.

Application details: Please refer to the contact details/links below for closing dates.
