2016 Artist Grant

General Information:

Central Church is a non-denominational Christian Church in Port Kembla. As part of our commitment to our local community, and as an expression of our appreciation for all forms of artistic expression we have developed an annual artist grant. The grant aims to serve the mission and ministry of Central Church through artistic expression. It could have a focus primarily within the community of the church or a focus towards the outward expression of our faith to the wider community of Port Kembla. The grant is open to a range of disciplines including painting, installation, moving image, digital, illustration, the written word, music and photography. The successful application will reflect the values, culture, mission and heart of Central Church. As Central Church is a Christian organisation the grant will need to reflect a Christian Spirituality.
