Creative Communities Scheme

February 12, 2020

Round 2 of the 2019/20 year will open 29 February, with the consideration meeting to be held on Tuesday 21 April 2020

This fund is supplied by Creative NZ and administered by the Rangitikei District Council. Members of the public are nominated to the Committee and are joined by a Councillor and the Mayor. Committee terms are for three years, with the latest term beginning in November 2019.

Applications are encouraged from all community groups and individuals whose projects:

  • demonstrate growth over time
  • develop and support local artistic communities
  • encourage a transfer or artistic skills.
  • diversity, inclusion, and projects with a youth focus are also encouraged.

An example is workshops teaching kids screen-printing techniques to create posters for display.
