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".

Love the arts?

From time to time we look for people to help assess for Creative Communities Scheme funding.

There are two funding rounds per year when you'll be involved, and each will require 5-10 hours of your time. It is interesting work and you'll be well supported.

If you are interested in the next available opportunity, complete the application form and send it to us.
