Creative Communities Scheme
The Creative Communities Scheme supports and encourages local communities to create and present diverse opportunities for accessing and participating in arts activities.
Under the scheme, 'the arts' are broadly defined as 'all forms of creative and interpretative expression'. This includes opportunities for creative participation in theatre, music, visual arts, digital art, applied arts, arts education, Toi Maori, literary workshops, digital storytelling, and many other activities.
Across Auckland, funding is broken into geographical areas (North, West, Central, South and Auckland-wide).
Local rounds - for projects that primarily engage participant and audiences in one of the four areas: North, West, Central and South. Local rounds are available in August and February.
The Auckland-wide round - for projects across two or more geographical areas eg a music workshop that happens in Flat Bush, Avondale and Muriwai. Auckland-wide round is available in August only.
