Are you a Springfield Lakes artist or innovator with a unique idea for a product or project who lacks the resources to make your dreams a reality? You can now submit your application for Brisbane City Council’s Creative and History Grant 2019-2020. 

Applications have opened in mid-October but if this is your first time seeking a grant, it might help to join the Creative Grant Information Sessions first. Six sessions across different venues will be underway to help Brisbane locals prepare an effective application.

You’ll learn the following at these Creative Grant Information Sessions :
