The Creative Communities Scheme for the April 2017 funding round is open for applications, closing 28 April 2017.
The Creative Communities Scheme is a partnership between Creative New Zealand (the national arts development agency) and local councils in New Zealand.
It supports and encourages local communities to create and present diverse opportunities for accessing and participating in arts activities within their areas.
An application can be from either a group or an individual. Individual applicants must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents.

These are FREE, interactive, practical workshops that have been designed so that participants work on their own project during the workshop and can immediately apply in the real world.
