Six small towns with populations fewer than 2,000 people will be granted $350,000 each for collaborative projects that leave a lasting legacy of creativity and artistic passion.

We encourage ambitious thinking, and welcome projects incorporating everything from design, performance, game development and film-making to visual arts, music and beyond.

“Now is the time to start thinking about how art can transform your town,” said Regional Arts Victoria Director, Esther Anatolitis.

“Small Town Transformations is all about contemporary approaches to creative collaborations that last. We’ll be asking for expressions of interest to be made in partnerships, so gather together and be bold."

Expressions of interest from towns will open on Monday, 9 November 2015 and close 29 February 2016.Regional Arts Victoria presents Small Town Transformations on behalf of the Victorian Government.

The first Small Town Transformations from 2012 to 2014 were awarded to Avoca, Dookie, Natimuk, Neerim South and Ouyen.
