Creative Yarra grants

We awarded $510,000, over 3 years, to 10 organisations and 2 individual artists to provide dynamic and valuable arts activities in the City of Yarra through the Creative Yarra grants.

The activities are each of high cultural and artistic merit and demonstrate a strong link with Yarra’s community.

Funding for our much-loved street festivals

The Johnston Street Latin American Fiesta and the Victoria Street Lunar Festival will each receive $30,000 per annum for the next 3 years, as well as event management and logistics support.

These long-running events remain 2 of Yarra’s highest capacity festivals and both are located in celebrated streets and run by community committees.
