Funding and Resource Allocation


 “Funding and Resource Allocation” within the Umbrella Project is about ensuring that the arts and cultural sector in the City of Moreton Bay has the necessary support to thrive, innovate, and contribute to the community’s cultural, social, and economic well-being.

Cultural Benefits

Equitable funding and resource allocation ensure that all forms of art can thrive. It supports a wide range of projects, from grassroots initiatives to landmark cultural institutions, fostering a resilient and multifaceted arts ecosystem.

Stakeholder Benefits

Artists and collectives achieve their creative potential; galleries and institutions execute higher-calibre exhibitions; educational entities provide enriched learning experiences; businesses benefit from a culturally engaged society; government realizes a more vibrant community.

More efficient funding could allow for more significant and impactful arts projects.

For instance, a well-funded public art project could enhance local tourism, potentially increasing visitor spending by a measurable percentage, which could be in the range of tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Grant Application Argument

“Strategic funding allocation is the lifeline of a thriving arts scene. It’s an investment that pays dividends in community cohesion, educational enrichment, and the economic prosperity that a vibrant cultural sector invariably brings.”
