Do you have an idea for a great arts project?

Creative Communities Funding Scheme is closing in two weeks

Upper Hutt, 17 April 2014 - The Creative Communities grants are funds that are administered through the Upper Hutt City Council on behalf of Creative NZ. The fund aims to inspire communities to create great arts projects of all descriptions. It is available for any project that provides opportunities for local communities to engage with and participate in arts activities.

The type of projects that have been accepted for funding previously include activities like sculpture, dance performances, music sessions, art therapy, and cultural festivals. The allocation committee is primarily made up of members of the local community and they are looking to fund a wide array of projects, so put forward any arts or culture based ideas that you have to improve the Upper Hutt arts scene.

The closing date for applications is Wednesday, 30 April 2014 at 4.00 pm, so now is the time to apply. If you would like more information about whether your project is eligible, or if you would like a copy of the application form please email funding@uhcc.govt.nz.
