Thu 6 Sept 18.

Applications for art project funding under the Creative Community Grants scheme are now open until Friday 12 October.

The objective of the Creative Communities Scheme is to increase participation in the arts at a local level as well as increasing the range and diversity of arts and culture available to local communities.

Anyone involved art projects which meet these objectives and that take place within the Ruapehu District and/or produce benefits that are largely experienced within the District is encouraged to apply.

The Creative Community Grants scheme is administered by Ruapehu District Council on behalf of Creative NZ and plays a vitally important role in supporting local art and artists in Ruapehu.

Any projects that fit the Creative Communities Scheme funding criteria, but which cannot be supported due to the scale of the project, or its significance or level of innovation can apply for funding directly from Creative New Zealand.

Decisions on grant applications are made by the Creative Communities Committee (CCC)

Further information is available on Council’s website or please contact Nikki Fieldes via your local Council office.
