Funding for local art projects available now

Funding for local art projects available now

Auckland City Council and Creative New Zealand’s latest Creative Communities funding round is now open for applications.

The round is an opportunity for you or your organisation to apply for funding for arts projects that benefit residents of Auckland City and takes place between 1 June 2003 and 1 July 2004. People need to lodge their applications with the council by 4.30pm on Friday, 11 April 2003.

The council has funding available to support local community arts initiatives. It administers the funds on behalf of Creative New Zealand, the government agency responsible for the support and development of arts in New Zealand.

The council’s Recreation and Events Committee chairperson, Councillor Scott Milne, says, “Each year this fund attracts an enormous response from the arts community and we’re always disappointed to have to turn applications down. The criteria set down ensure we select the very best applications and the benefit is not only for the successful applicants but to the wider Auckland City community.”

Both individuals and organisations can apply if they meet the criteria, which is outlined in an information pack available by phoning 379 2020. Interested people can also visit www.aucklandcity.govt.nz/grantsandfunding.

Starting this week, Auckland City will hold a series of public information sessions to assist individuals and groups with their applications.
