A Funding Chat


Applying for arts grants and funding.  If you’ve never done it before, how do you know where to begin? Perhaps you’ve tried unsuccessfully in the past, or aren’t sure which funds best suit  your purposes?

 

Creative Coromandel are hosting an online arts funding workshop on Tuesday 16th October. The free, informal workshop is designed to inform emerging, established and professional artists, with guest speakers offering insight from across the creative spectrum.

 

The workshop will be delivered to you online via ‘Zoom’ so you can watch, listen and contribute from the comfort of home.  Zoom is an easy to use webinar platform that allows groups to connect and collaborate in face to face meetings without the need for technical know-how or software downloads.  

 

Creative Waikato’s Paul Bradley will facilitate the session along with Creative Coromandel’s host; Rob Johnston.  Guest contributors are; Coromandel Harakeke weaver Lizzy Leckie, Contracts Adviser, Janelle Salisbury and Funding Services Adviser, Kate Adolph from Creative New Zealand, and Projects and Operations Manager, Donelle McKinley from Boosted.

 

As a local artist and recipient of Creative New Zealand funding, Lizzy Leckie will share an artist’s experience of the CNZ application process. Learn how long the application process took, what was required to fulfill the application and how Lizzy utilised the grant she received.

 

Donnelle McKinley will provide an explanation of how crowdfunding arts platform Boosted works to bring artists and audiences closer together. In the past year Donelle personally supported 88 projects that reached their funding goal, contributing to Boosted's awesome 85% success rate.

 

Paul Bradley brings a wealth of arts funding knowledge drawn from extensive experience in his role of Creative Development at Creative Waikato.  Paul will offer an overview of the various funding sources, grants and artist residencies available, including the Creative Communities Scheme.

 

Janelle Salisbury is responsible for managing the delivery of the Creative Communities Scheme, and works with the city and district councils who distribute the funding, which allows New Zealanders to be involved in local arts activities. Janelle also monitors the funding agreements and development goals of arts organisations in the Toi Totara Haemata and Toi Uru Kahikatea investment programmes.        

 

Kate Adolph is an Adviser in CNZ's Funding Services team, and provides an end to end service to clients on all contestable project funding opportunities from pre application advice through to reporting on your grant. The team assists applicants to find the right funding pathway, provides advice regarding eligibility and Creative New Zealand guidelines and information on making applications to arts grants, quick response, special opportunities, capability and international initiatives.

 

Creative Coromandel Trustee Rob Johnston says the aim of the workshop is to equip Coromandel artists with funding information and encourage artists at all levels to consider funding opportunities.  

 

“The aim for the workshop is provide a forum to learn how to approach an arts funding application and offer the absolute basics of how to go about it. It’s also an opportunity to meet with your local arts’ community and listen and learn from one another.”

 

Rob is also keen to hear from anyone who has been the recipient of arts funding or an artist’s residency who might be willing to share their experience.  Please contact robj.creativecoromandel@gmail.com if this sounds like you.

 

The funding workshop will take place on 16th October from 10.30am-11.40am. If you are new to using Zoom, please login from 10.20am to familiarise yourself with the platform before the forum begins.
