Creative Communities Grants

We have a partnership with Creative New Zealand to promote, support and increase participation in community arts and cultural activities in the Central Otago district. Each year Creative New Zealand provides Creative Communities Scheme funding to Council to distribute. 

How to Apply

There are two funding rounds a year, with the closing dates for applications in February and August. 

Anyone interested in applying should read through the Creative Communities New Zealand Application Guide​​.​

Please note that your project can not have started before your application has been assessed by the Committee. The Committee meets in the month following applications closing - ie. March and September.
