Applications will open early 2019

Lead the change you want to see in your local area

Got a project idea for your local area? We want to help fund your ideas!

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.

We are turning the transformation of public spaces over to you, the community.

What does Place Makers fund?

Place Makers aims to not just rejuvenate public spaces and streets, but to invigorate thinking about what makes a public space great.

Place Makers is a great opportunity to try out a good idea that may lead to a more permanent project.

Some of the projects we have previously funded include:

  • laneway transformation in Kidman Park to create a local community space

  • large scale murals in Hindmarsh and Kilkenny

  • Henley 'Make it Mine' market

  • Shomy skill sharing workshop series

  • Beach art classes for children
