The Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) helps to fund local arts projects.
Each year Creative New Zealand provides CCS funding to councils to distribute in their areas. The CCS for Whangarei District is administered by Whangarei District Council.
Allocation of CCS grants in Whangarei District is undertaken by an independent committee comprising of Council and community representatives.
The Creative Communities Scheme supports and encourages local communities to create and present diverse opportunities for accessing and participating in arts activities within their specific geographical area, as well as for defined communities of interest.
Under the scheme, "the arts" is defined as "all forms of creative and interpretative expression".
Round 2 for 2016-2017 is now closed. The next round will open July/August.
