Vacy to Gresford: People and Places – a successful 2023 Cultural Grants project by the Paterson Historical Society.

We are pleased to share that the 2024 Cultural Grants Program is now open!

The Cultural Grants Program is a Create NSW devolved funding program administered by the Royal Australian Historical Society on behalf of the NSW Government. This Cultural Grants program assists historical research and publication of local, community and regional history projects.

Last year, eighteen projects were recommended for funding to the value of $60,668. Fifty per cent of projects focused on regional areas, thirty-three per cent on metropolitan Sydney, and seventeen per cent on Western Sydney. You can learn more about last year’s program from the 2023 Assessment Report.

Paterson Historical Society was one of last year’s successful projects. They were awarded $2,000 to publish a history about the communities along the Paterson and Allyn Rivers between the village of Vacy and the town of Gresford. The book was recently published as Vacy to Gresford: People and Places (2024). You can learn about other successful projects on our Cultural Grants website.

We want to thank Create NSW for providing funding for the Cultural Grants Program that supports local history and heritage projects, facilitating an understanding of the history of the people and places of New South Wales.

The 2024 Cultural Grants Program opens on 14 May at 9 am and closes on 2 July at midnight. If you would like to learn more about the 2024 Cultural Grants Program, you can visit our website.
