Swansea Council has opened a £50,000 Cultural Fund to help its local arts and culture sector bounce back from the pandemic.
Swansea-based freelancers and organisations working in arts, culture and heritage can claim up to £1,500.
"We know that with lost income and more pressure on audiences' purses than ever, the costs of staging events or concerts will be daunting for some local groups. This is where we think we can help," cabinet member Robert Francis-Davies said.
"Swansea's cultural community is crucial to keeping our city strong and our residents fit and healthy."
To apply for funding, applicants must email the council and return a completed application before October 31.
