The Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) helps to fund the creation and presentation of diverse arts activities including exhibitions, productions, concerts, festivals, or workshops.
The emphasis is on creating opportunities for people to access and participate in the arts, with a particular focus on diversity and youth. The CCS defines "the arts" as "all forms of creative and interpretative expression".
The scheme is administered by Council on behalf of Creative New Zealand. An independent committee made up of Council and community representatives determines the allocation of CCS grants for Whangārei District.
Amount: Maximum grant of $10,000 from a total available fund of $70,000.
Closing dates for 2021:
- Round 1 - 1 June 2021
- Round 2 - 4 October 2021
