Applications welcome for 2014 Enhanced Access Fund

Groups undertaking projects to enhance access to New Zealand’s outdoors are invited to apply for funding through the Enhanced Access Fund 2014.

The contestable fund, administered by the New Zealand Walking Access Commission, aims to support projects designed to enhance access to New Zealand's great outdoors.

A new funding approach for 2014-15 will see $76,000 made available over four funding rounds, with priority given to initiatives that obtain new access and projects such as the installation of signs that inform the public about access opportunities.

Projects that develop and improve walking access through the installation of gates, stiles and fences or creation of engineering reports, and projects that support community walking access initiatives, are also eligible for funding.

The application deadline for the first 2014 funding round is 31 May. Application forms, guidelines and information about closing dates for all 2014 funding rounds can be found online at www.walkingaccess.govt.nz.

New Zealand Walking Access Commission Chief Executive Mark Neeson said the shift away from a single annual application process would provide for more flexibility around project start dates by making it easier for groups to seek funding throughout the year.

“There are many hard working community groups doing their bit to improve access in our country and this fund is designed to give them a helping hand. More than 60 projects have received Enhanced Access Fund support over the past four years, and we expect demand for funding to remain strong,” Mr Neeson said.

The Commission expects most applications will be for small projects, although a maximum of $25,000 may be granted to any one project.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
