The Blue Mountains City Council is the Trustee and each year Council contributes $50,000 to the Trust to administer a grants program. The Trust Advisory Committee makes recommendations to the Blue Mountains City Council to support selected arts projects in the visual, performing and literary arts for the benefit of Blue Mountains residents.
