Creative Community Scheme funding round closes

Wednesday 01 December 2021 5:00 PM

Creative Communities Scheme Funding Round One Closes 5pm Monday 1 December 2021.

 

The fund was set up by Creative New Zealand in 1996 and the local distribution of that fund is administered by us.

The funds primary objective is the support of arts and cultural activities that encourage participation in a wide range of arts activities.

All projects eligible for funding must be arts and cultural projects that:

  • Increase participation in the arts at a local level or increase the range and diversity of the arts available to local communities.
  • Take place within the district to which the application is made, and/or produce benefits that are largely experienced within that district.
  • Not have started before an application for funding is assessed.
  • Not have been already funded by Creative New Zealand for the same purpose.
