2019 Arts Culture Grants Now Open

The King Valley Art Show Inc. (KVAS) is proud to offer small grants to enrich the King Valley arts culture.

The King Valley Art Show is held annually on the Queen’s Birthday long weekend.   The art show is highly successful, with artists exhibiting from across the state and from interstate.  Sponsors, mainly local businesses or people from the local community, provide the prize money.

Historically, the intention of the art show was to stage an annual art show and to form an Arts Group whose role was to develop arts culture in the King Valley.  Through ongoing careful financial management, KVAS is now in a position to offer small grants of up to $1500 to enrich the King Valley arts culture.

Applications open at the conclusion of the art show and close on Wednesday 31st October 2018.  Applicants will be notified of the result of their application by the Friday 30 November 2018 . Activities must be completed within 12 months of a successful application.

The purposes of the Arts Culture Grants are to:

  • benefit the King Valley community (King Valley Wine region),
  • bring arts to the King Valley community,
  • engage local people in cultural activities,
  • provide opportunity for community members to undertake cultural and art activities in the valley.


Grants may be used for a variety of purposes such as (but not limited to) the running of workshops, cultural events, arts activities, venue or equipment hire, engaging speakers, or supporting local artists in their endeavours.


Applications must demonstrate how the event or project aligns with the purposes of the grant.

Closing Date Wednesday 31st October 2018
