Create NSW Holiday Break Partnership Program and the Office for Regional Youth are calling for EOIs from arts and cultural organisations, and individuals, across the state to partner on a new initiative for young people during school holidays.
The Holiday Break Program Performing Arts Camp provides an opportunity for Creative Kids providers and performing arts organisations to deliver a performing arts residential camp or workshop program across a range of artforms. Funding is available for applicants to deliver a minimum five-day program of performing arts workshops in regional NSW. These can comprise drama, dance, circus arts or physical theatre. You can apply for $30,000 for a week Workshop Program, and/or $55,000 for a week Residential Camp.
The programs must include a partnership with at least one regionally based Creative Kids Provider, and result in a public facing performance, workshop, or showcase.

The Holiday Break Program aims to deliver a rotating school holiday program of cultural events for young people (12–24 years old) across regional NSW, with a focus on the resilience of the newest generation being affected by drought, bushfires, floods and COVID-19. It provides the opportunity for them to enjoy a range of recreational and social activities that are responsive, free, and local, so their creativity, imagination and self-confidence is enhanced. It also builds on their physical, social, cognitive and emotional development skills.
