Welcome to Otorohanga District Council
This fund provides funding for groups involved in the arts. The Creative Communities Scheme is a partnership between Creative New Zealand (the national arts development agency) and local councils in New Zealand.
The Creative Communities Scheme supports and encourages local communities to create and present diverse opportunities for accessing and participating in arts activties within their specific geographical areas.
An application can be from either a group or an individual. Individual applicants must be New Zealand citizens or permanent residents.
If you have previously received funding under the Creative Communities Scheme, either as an individual or as part of a group, you must have completed a project report for the earlier project before any further applications from you will be considered.
Two funding rounds are held each year, and are advertised in the local paper in May and November each year.
