Call out to the Arts Community

Published: 29-Jan-2019

We can offer support for groups and individuals who are keen to provide arts and cultural activities in the Waimakariri District from the Creative Communities New Zealand Scheme.

You can apply under three funding criteria:

  • Access and participation – creating opportunities for local communities to engage with and participate in local arts activities
  • Diversity – the project will support the diverse arts and cultural traditions of local communities, enriching and promoting their uniqueness and cultural diversity
  • Young People – the project will enable and encourage young people to engage with and actively participate in the arts

The next Creative Communities round will close 15 March 2019, for events or activities that take place between 20 April 2019 and 20 April 2020. The Application Form and Guide for Applicants are available from Council Service Centres and Libraries or at

The Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) provides funding to communities so New Zealanders can be involved in local arts activities. Learn more here.
