Local arts funding scheme

Are you involved in an arts project, festival, performance or workshop?

If so, Wairoa District Council along with Creative Communities New Zealand are giving you the opportunity to apply for funding in the arts.

The purpose of the Creative Communities Scheme is to increase participation in arts in the Wairoa district and increase the range and diversity of arts available to communities.

About the scheme

Wairoa District Council administers the Creative Communities Scheme, which is funded by Creative New Zealand. Creative New Zealand is a central government agency and is New Zealand's main organisation for funding of the arts.

The purpose of the Creative Communities Scheme is to increase participation in arts in the Wairoa district and increase the range and diversity of arts available to communities.

There are two funding rounds per year:

  • March/April and
  • October/November.

Decision making

Members of Council's Assessment Committee are:

  • Iryna Robson (Chairperson)
  • Uon Malis Men
  • Zach Stark
  • Ilana Cheiban
  • Kathleen Pickering

Who can apply?

You can apply for funding through Creative New Zealand as long as your project meets all of the following:

  • Individuals or groups can apply.
  • Individuals must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents.
  • Eligibility for the Creative Communities Scheme

If you have already received funding from CCS for a project, you must complete a report on that project before making another application, unless the project is still in progress.

To be eligible for the Creative Communities Scheme, your project must:

  • take place within the city or district where the application is made
  • be completed within 12 months of funding being approved
  • benefit local communities
  • not have started or finished before CCS funding is approved
  • not have already been funded through Creative New Zealand's other arts funding programmes.

Types of project funded

Projects that get funded do at least one of the following:

  • encourage participation — they create opportunities for local communities to engage with, and participate in local arts activities
  • support diversity — they support the diverse artistic cultural traditions of local communities
  • enable young people — they enable young people (under 18 years) to engage with, and participate in the arts.

How much can I apply for?

The CCS is not a large arts funding avenue for significant arts related projects. Nationally, grants made under the CCS are mostly under $2,000 per project.

If you need to apply for over $8,000 you should consider discussing your project with Creative New Zealand to see if it qualifies for national funding. Visit Creative New Zealand's website, or email info@creativenz.govt.nz.
