Good music, good vibes and good business will help bring Sydney back to life

$3 million in funding will support the city on its path to revitalisation.

With Sydney once again open for business, locals and visitors of all ages and interests can look forward to a range of new events, activities and attractions across the city.

Our latest round of grants and funding to revitalise the city will go towards live music performances, pop-up theatre productions, dance festivals and more.

111 projects have been approved for funding to help encourage visitors and boost the social, cultural and economic life of the city.

Events like Art Month Sydney, Australian Cocktail Month, National Indigenous Art Fair, and music festivals including Winter Jazz Festival and Electronic Music Conference and Festival will all benefit from City of Sydney grants.

The grants complement our broader community recovery plan and will be funded in part through the $20 million CBD revitalisation fund established by the City of Sydney and NSW Government last year to boost the city centre economy and support businesses.

“As we emerge from lockdown and begin our recovery from the pandemic, these projects will foster and celebrate Sydney’s culture and creativity, support the local economy, and encourage sustainability and business growth,” Lord Mayor Clover Moore said.

“We want to help our communities survive and recover from the impacts of the pandemic, but also ensure that we’re creating a better, more resilient city in the process.”

Also benefiting from our latest round of grants and funding to revitalise the city is support for Indigenous businesses, assistance for creative industry professionals, a mentorship program to support Asian students and the regeneration of urban spaces in the city to provide shading and reduce the heat island effect.

Many of these initiatives may well become permanent fixtures and help underpin a renewed vibrancy in our city.

Our grants and sponsorships support projects that build the social, cultural, environmental and economic life of the city and assist in the recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

The next round of the grants opens in February 2022.
