For application details please click on link below
The Creative Communities Scheme supports and encourages local communities to
create and present diverse opportunities for accessing and participating in
Under the scheme, 'the arts' are broadly defined as 'all forms of creative
and interpretative expression'. This includes opportunities for creative
participation in theatre, music, visual arts, digital art, applied arts,
arts education, Toi Maori, literary workshops, digital storytelling, and
many other activities.
In 2010, Creative New Zealand revised some of the criteria and assessment of
the Creative Communities Scheme. If you have applied to the Creative
Communities Scheme in the past you will notice some changes.
Across Auckland, funding is broken into geographical areas (North, West,
Central, South and Auckland-wide).
Local rounds - for projects that primarily engage participant and audiences
in one of the four areas: North, West, Central and South. Local rounds are
available in August and February.
The Auckland-wide round - for projects across two or more geographical areas
eg a music workshop that happens in Flat Bush, Avondale and Muriwai.
Auckland-wide round is available in August only.
