Ashburton District Council is seeking applications from individuals and community groups for the first round of Creative Communities Funding 2016/17.
The Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) funds projects with an arts or cultural focus, such as theatre, visual, multi-media, dance, traditional arts, craft and music.
Creative New Zealand provides CCS funding to councils across the country to distribute in their area. The scheme recognises the unique place of local arts projects in communities and is assessed by a local committee who have an extensive background in the district's varied arts community.
Further information about the grant and funding application forms and criteria can be found on Council's website or from the Council office.
Applications close Thursday 15 September 2016 at 5pm.
