Creative New Zealand - Creative Communities Scheme
Funding is available for community-based arts activities in the Selwyn District from the Creative Communities Scheme.
The aim of the Scheme is to increase participation in the arts at a local level, and increase the range and diversity of arts available to communities.
The Scheme is a partnership between Creative New Zealand and the 74 local authorities. Each local authority take responsibility for delivery of the Scheme in its area.
Local decision-making is the key to the Scheme and applications are considered by local assessment committees. All New Zealanders are eligible to apply.
There are four funding rounds held each year. Closing dates are generally the last Friday in August, November, February, and in mid May.
