The City of Fremantle values the arts and acknowledges the fundamental role the sector plays in creating the City we all envisage; a city that is clever, creative, inspiring and inclusive, one that welcomes and celebrates all people and cultures, a place that encourages innovation, prosperity and achievement, shows compassion towards people and our environment and thrives on diversity, daring to be different.

The grants are designed to incubate, support and develop our arts community, playing a small but important role in the bigger picture.
