Local Arts Funding Scheme opening for applications

Palmerston North City Council would like to advise that applications for the Creative Communities Local Arts Funding Scheme will be accepted from Monday 3rd March.

The scheme is for arts groups and individuals and aims to support projects that encourage local people to participate in arts related activities.

Fund administrator Adrian Turner said each round sees a wide variety of projects applying.

“Successful applications in the last year included funding for the Highbury shops mural, Skin Theatre’s production of Macbeth, Swampfest 2013, Rudely Interrupted at Te Manawa and PULSE urban art festival.”

All applications will be considered.

In a change from previous years, the fund is now allocated in three funding rounds per year with applications able to be made for up to $5000. There will no longer be alternate rounds with a limit of $2000.

“People used to applying to the lower limit rounds through Community Arts Council need to be aware of the change,” Adrian said. “There is now one place to apply for requests big or small and an additional opportunity to apply during the year.”

Applications are available from pncc.govt.nz, you can ring the Council on 356 8199 or collect an application from libraries or PNCC Customer Service Centre.

For advice or help email Adrian Turner at adrian.turner@pncc.govt.nz. Applications close on Monday 14th April at 4pm.
