City call for Grants-in-Aid applications<p>​</p><p>The Arts and Culture Branch invites proposals for the funding of projects that will promote and support sustainable cultural development and social well-being in communities throughout the metropole, towards building a city of hope.</p><p>Applications are invited for visual and performing arts, temporary public art, and therapeutic arts-based interventions. Proposals should speak to an appreciation for the arts, creativity, heritage and diversity, be able to produce new connections and forms of knowledge, and look to foster forms of social integration and belonging. They should also engage relevant issues such as gender-based violence, substance abuse, gangsterism and xenophobia, as well as exploring responses to environmental and ecological concerns, including climate change. </p><p>'With these Grants-in-Aid opportunities the City of Cape Town wants to raise awareness on the important role that Arts and Culture plays in society to not only promote a sense of belonging and inclusion but also to respect different cultures and the valuable contribution towards  building a City of hope. The funding to successful applicants will also strengthen and build partnerships so that we can do more to assist this sector at a community level. Many of these organisations are ambassadors for the City and assist in creating a better understanding of the role of local government',  said the City's Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services and Health, Councillor Patricia van der Ross.</p><p> </p><p>Proposals for grants-in-aid must be made in writing on an official application form (available from all subcouncil offices, the Arts and Culture Branch and online on <a href=""></a>).</p><p>Applications for grant funding must be made in writing on an official application form (available from all subcouncil offices, the Arts and Culture Branch and online on <a href=""></a>).</p><p>The closing date for applications is 17:00 on 2 December 2022.</p><p>For further information contact Rhyno Jansen on 021 417 4104 or <a href=""></a></p><p>For  more information on the Grant-in-Aid policy visit: <a href=""></a></p><p> </p><p> <strong>End</strong></p><p><br></p>2022-11-06T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#67a38274-6eb4-4def-a739-b18585ff953d;L0|#067a38274-6eb4-4def-a739-b18585ff953d|early chidhood development centre;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#a4a279af-4b4b-46ae-ab60-475ecf75ef44;L0|#0a4a279af-4b4b-46ae-ab60-475ecf75ef44|Arts and culture10
