The scheme, backed by Creative New Zealand, aims to increase participation in the arts, broaden the range and diversity of the arts available to communities and enhance and strengthen the local arts sector. 

The next funding round is open from Monday 14 August to Friday 8 September 2023.

As well as funding for creative projects, there is also a fund to support local arts festivals. Find out more about each fund below.
