Find a project collaborator for our new city centre grants

Local Sydney tech platform Collabosaurus is connecting businesses and creatives on new grants to enliven our city centre.

Our new CBD activation grants encourage business and creatives to work together to bring life back to our public and corporate city spaces.

We want to inspire visitors to safely return to the heart of Sydney and help revitalise the economy.

Applicants can apply for $5,000 to $50,000 for live music and cultural programming projects as part of this $3m program.

Events are to take place in central Sydney – the CBD and Haymarket areas. This includes Barangaroo, Darling Harbour and The Rocks.

Find your perfect creative match

You may need a creative partner or help from a venue or business to make your vision a reality.

That’s why we’ve enlisted Sydney’s Collabosaurus to do a little matchmaking. Collabosaurus is a marketing tool that connects brands, businesses and creatives so they can work together on opportunities.

Potential CBD activation grant applicants can access a free Collabosaurus account until 7 December 2020.

More than 20 local businesses and artists are already seeking partners to connect with and apply for a grant. See how to get involved and find your perfect creative match.
