A record funding pool of $1 million will be available to regional event holders as part of the 2018-19 Regional Events Scheme, including $150,000 for events which deliver authentic Aboriginal experiences.
The Regional Events Scheme supports smaller, developing regional events across the State.
The scheme includes the new Regional Aboriginal Events Scheme, which will fund events that showcase Aboriginal experiences through leadership and participation of Aboriginal people.
Both schemes are supported by Tourism Western Australia and Royalties for Regions and are open to events held between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019. Event holders can request funding of between $5,000 and $50,000.
Applications close at 5pm on Tuesday December 12, 2017. For more information or to apply, visit http://www.tourism.wa.gov.au/res
