Arts West & Melton City Council announce the CONNECT WEST: Melton Artist Support Initiative.

Melton City Council is proud to be working alongside Arts West in supporting local artists by offering free Arts West Creative Memberships for 2019 as part of its ongoing commitment to nurturing the growth and development of the local Arts community.

Arts West is a unique alliance of arts organisations who together reflect the exciting, vibrant and ever expanding arts and culture thriving in Melbourne’s west. In 2018, Arts West extended a warm welcome to our local independent artists and small companies and invited them to become Arts West Creative Members. Membership provides a host of great benefits including: Professional development and networking opportunities; connection to the wider western Arts community through special events and communication groups; advocacy; shared resources and special discounts to events, venue hire and equipment hire (where available). As a community, we aim to share our knowledge and resources; foster new relationships; advocate for; and support artists and small companies in the west.

During the month of February and March, Melton City Council are offering professional artists within their municipality the opportunity to join Arts West through a subsidised Artist Support Initiative.

To be eligible you must;
a) Consider yourself a professional artist within your chosen arts practice.
b) Reside or create Art within Melton City Council boundaries.

To receive your free 2019 Arts West Creative Membership, please submit your EOI here: Melton City Council - Artist Support Initiative - EOI before the 31st of March 2019.

Successful applicants will be notified (via email) shortly after submissions close.
