Funding gives boost to 37 local projects

More than $43,000 of Creative Communities Scheme funding has been awarded to 37 local groups and individuals.

“A partnership between Waitakere City Council and Creative New Zealand, the scheme has the purpose of increasing participation in the arts at a local level and the range and diversity of arts available in the community,” says Creative Communities Scheme Allocation Sub-Committee chairman, Councillor Vanessa Neeson.

“We’re pleased we could assist so many local groups to achieve their ambitions.”

One of the major funding recipients was the Waitakere City Orchestra, which was allocated $2500 to help cover the costs of staging two performances in the Titirangi War Memorial Hall in August and November.

Other major recipients include Oratia Out Of School Care ($2000 for professional drama classes and art supplies) Pacific Islands Advisory Board ($2000 for a youth space for Pacific arts), Ranui Community House ($2000 to host an art show and competition), Torotoro Trust ($2000) for an urban Maori Pacific dance festival and West Auckland Primary Schools Multicultural Festival ($2000 to help cover festival costs).
