Tim Long from Hawkridge Entertainment Services recently assisted Create NSW by completing a short webinar giving tips for completing business cases for the Creative Capital – Medium to Large Project program. Tim is a member of the Cultural Infrastructure Advisory Board, appointed by the NSW Minister for the Arts, currently The Hon. (Ben) Benjamin Cameron Franklin, MLC.
The Cultural Infrastructure Advisory Board members are subject matter experts in arts management, artform expertise, building and technical infrastructure needs of cultural venues. The purpose of the Board is to assess applications over $50,000 made to the Creative Capital Program.
The Creative Capital fund has been established to meet the demands for facilities to support the creative economy and improve access to and participation in quality cultural experiences across NSW.
