Call for participation in craft/object, visual arts reviews
Creative New Zealand calling for participation in craft/object and visual arts reviews
Creative New Zealand is reviewing how its resources can best support and develop craft/object and visual arts in New Zealand.
Creative New Zealand has collated information on its support for the craft/object and visual arts and also commissioned research on related activities in a selection of museums, galleries and tertiary institutions. Initial scoping of the issues and the implications for Creative New Zealand were discussed by two focus groups – one each for craft/object art and visual arts.
How to contribute to the reviews?
Preliminary work (above) has informed proposals outlined in two draft reports; one each for craft and object art and visual arts. Both reports, which raise a number of questions, were distributed to the sector on 4 June.
People can contribute to the reviews by:
• responding to an online questionnaire
• sending an email
• providing written comments in hard copy.
Details on how to respond to the reviews are contained in the draft reports.
What is the timeframe?
The deadline for responses is 5pm on Wednesday 25 June 2014. Responses will inform recommendations to the Arts Council.
Final reports will be published in August and approved recommendations will be implemented from January 2015.
