Funding for art projects
AN Arty Party interactive event in Lismore, a week-long art trail exhibition in Murwillumbah, and a youth street art workshop in Kyogle are among art projects to share in $19,405 of funding in the latest Country Arts Support Program (CASP) administered by Regional Arts NSW.
The projects were selected by a panel industry rep-resentative from each local government area of the Northern Rivers, Arts Northern Rivers CEOPeter Wood said.
