Creative Community Funding opens today

Creative Community Funding opens today

Our Creative Communities Funding round opens today and we've got $11,500 to distribute to local art groups and creative projects across the Coromandel.

The scheme, backed by Creative New Zealand, aims to increase participation in the arts, broaden the range and diversity of the arts available to communities and enhance and strengthen the local arts sector.

Funding is awarded to projects rather than people undertaking the project and applications must meet one or more of the scheme’s criteria.

Your project must meet one or more of the following funding criteria:

1. Broad community involvement - The project will create opportunities for local communities to engage with and participate in arts activities.

2. Diversity - The project will support the diverse arts and cultural traditions of local communities, enriching and promoting their uniqueness and cultural diversity.

3. Young people - The project will enable and encourage young people (under 18 years) to engage with and actively participate in the arts.

The types of projects or activities that could be funded include:

• Exhibitions, productions, concerts, festivals, workshops and presentations that offer opportunities for community involvement in the arts.

• Activities that support the traditions and arts of ethnic communities.

• Youth arts events.

• Artist-led projects involving local communities.

• Materials for arts activities or programmes

• Personnel costs for one-off, short-term projects.

• Promotion and publicity of arts activities.

• School-based projects that are outside of the school’s normal activities and provide opportunities for community participation or benefits to the wider community are also eligible.

We administer the funding based on decisions made by a District Assessment Committee made up of representatives from across the Thames-Coromandel District.

For more information contact Margaret Harrison who is our Creative Communities Scheme Coordinator on 07 866 1001.

As it licks its wounds, let’s hope the National Party can still find time to look back with some pride at what it has achieved in Epsom. The Act Party’s nationwide success on Saturday night has been a tribute to National’s foresight, and to its ability to pick winners. Others would have looked at the dying remnants of the old Act Party and written it off. Yet National needed an MMP partner and it saw the potential where no-one else did. And so it re-grew the Act Party in a petri dish in Epsom, and carefully nurtured it back to life... More>>
