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.
