Funding application workshop to help community-led arts projects get off the ground

Upper Hutt City Council and Creative New Zealand are presenting a funding application workshop to boost community-led art projects.

UPPER HUTT, Wellington NZ, 27 AUG 2014—The second round of Creative Communities funding for 2014 opens on 5 September, prompting Upper Hutt City Council to inspire and empower more people in the community to get involved in creative funding opportunities.

Creative New Zealand and Upper Hutt City Council will be holding a free, one-hour workshop on Tuesday 9 September from 6.00 – 7.00 pm at the Trentham Community House. The aim of the workshop is to take people through the application form, the essential information that needs to be included, and how to put creative ideas down on paper.

This is also a promotional activity for the fund, to boost applications after the previous funding round in 2014 only received 15 applications. Emma Laidlow, Upper Hutt City Council’s Creative Communities funding administrator believes that this is not an adequate reflection of the rich artistic talent and leadership within the city.

“Turning an idea for a fun and dynamic community arts project into words on a funding application can be daunting for anyone, especially if it’s your first time,” says Miss Laidlow. “We don’t want this to be a barrier for all the creative people in Upper Hutt. This workshop will provide our local people who are new to the funding process, with the chance to learn more about how to make a winning funding application.”

Attendants are asked to bring along their arts project ideas to the workshop so they can apply their learnings practically and seek advice from the experts. The workshop will be specifically focussed on the Creative Communities funding, but the general information that is shared should also prove to be helpful when applying for other funding opportunities.

To register for the Creative Communities workshop contact Emma Laidlow by emailing funding@uhcc.govt.nz or call (04) 527 2793.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
