Creative Communities Scheme

Thames Coromandel District

Mar 27 2020

Get a helping hand for your arts group or creative project through the Creative Communities Scheme.


We're taking applications for the current funding round from today, 2 March until 27 March 2020.


This round of funding is for projects that will take place between 6 May 2020 - 6 May 2021. 


The Creative Coromandel - He Mana Toi Moehau Trust Board, made up of representatives from across the Coromandel, administers the Creative Communities Scheme funds on behalf of Creative New Zealand.


Funding is awarded to projects rather than the people undertaking the project. Applications need to meet one or more of the following criteria to be eligible for the funding:


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

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


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


The applications will be assessed 29 April 2020 and a second round will occur in September 2020.
