Creative NZ Creative Communities Scheme 2021

Applications for Creative Communities Grants are now open to local arts groups in the Mackenzie District.

Creative NZ

The Creative Communities Fund supports and encourages arts activities.

Under the scheme 'the arts' are broadly defined as 'all forms of creative and interpretive expression'. This includes creative participation in dance, performance, visual arts, music, arts education, toi Maori, literary workshops, digital storytelling and more.

The Creative Communities Scheme is a partnership between Creative New Zealand (the national arts development agency) and local councils in New Zealand. Each council takes responsibility for delivering the scheme in its area. Local decision-making is the key to the scheme: applications are considered by assessment committees with knowledge and experience of the arts in their area.

Further information, and an application form are available here.

Applications close on Wednesday, 17 November, 2021, at 5pm.
