Creative Communities Scheme - Arts Funding

There are two rounds of Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) funding per year - one in February and one in August.

The CCS provides funding to communities so New Zealanders can be involved in local arts activities.  The scheme supports a wide range of arts projects.  “The arts” is defined broadly to mean “all forms of creative and interpretative expression”.

Projects must meet one or more of the following funding criteria:
  • Access and Participation – the project will create opportunities for local communities to engage with and participate in local arts activities.
  • Diversity – the project will support the diverse artistic, cultural traditions of local communities.
  • Young people – the project will enable young people (under 18) to engage with and participate in the arts.
Please read the Creative Communities Scheme Application Guide to help you with your application.
