Westside Place Makers Grant

Westside Place Makers

Applications are now closed.  Next round will open January 2020.

Westside Place Makers is a grant program which funds projects in Charles Sturt’s public spaces that:

  • contribute to the Council’s vision for place making;
  • can be easily implemented, and;
  • have high impact.

Place Makers aims to support the rejuvenation of public spaces and streets, and invigorate thinking about what makes a public space great.

A Place Makers grant is a great opportunity to try out a good idea that may lead to a more permanent project. We particularly invite applications for projects that seek to enliven local main streets (retail strips) and propose initiatives that produce economic outcomes.


Ideas of Projects

  • Festivals & Markets
  • Skill sharing workshops & interactive activities
  • Walking apps and history tours
  • Little Libraries
  • Temporary or Permanent Art in the Public Space
  • Community gardens
  • Laneway transformations

No idea is too big or small. The opportunities are endless!
