Successful applicants for funding from the Creative Communities Funding Scheme received their grant cheques from Mayor John Terris at a special presentation evening held last Thursday night in Wainuiomata.
The Creative Communities Funding Scheme provides funding to groups and individuals involved in arts and cultural projects and activities in Hutt City.
"The scheme aims to increase participation in the arts at the local level, increase the range and diversity of arts available to communities, and enhance and strengthen the local arts and cultural sectors," said Community Development Funding Officer Caroline O'Loan.
