The Shire of Denmark Cultural Development Fund is designed to allow community based organisations and groups operating on a not for profit basis, to apply for financial assistance up to $2,000 to enable them to plan and implement cultural activities, appropriate to the needs of the community.


  • To extend the range of cultural activities in the Shire.
  • To provide opportunities for community groups to interact with professional artists.
  • To assist groups and individuals in the community to become involved in cultural activities.


All applications shall be made on the form available (posted on this website or available from the Shire of Denmark Office, Denmark Recreation Centre, and Denmark Public Library).  Applicants must address the selection criteria provided within the application guidelines.  Late applications will not be accepted for consideration.  Unsuccessful applicants will be advised and will need to reapply in the next year, if funding assistance is still required at that time.
