What is the creative communities scheme?

This scheme supports and encourages local arts activities. It is a partnership between Porirua City Council and Creative New Zealand. Each year Creative New Zealand provides funding to city and district councils for distributing in their area. Any individual, group or organisation can apply.

Projects that get funded do at least one of the following:

  • Encourage participation — they create opportunities for local communities to engage with, and participate in local arts activities
  • Support diversity — they support the diverse artistic cultural traditions of local communities
  • Enable young people — they enable young people (under 18 years) to engage with, and participate in the arts.

Do you need funding for a Porirua Arts Project?

The Round 2 for the 2017-18 Creative Communities Scheme is now open to projects that take place between 23rd April 2018 to 23rd April 2019.

Application forms can be downloaded here CCS Email Application 2018 or picked up from the Pātaka Art + Museum front desk.
