Nine local community groups have been
given a helping hand with funding their creative projects, after being awarded
Creative Communities Scheme funding at a presentation yesterday evening at the
Ashburton District Council chambers.
Council presented $11,380 of Creative
Communities Scheme funding to the groups, courtesy of Creative New Zealand, who
provide funding to councils each year to distribute in their communities.
The successful recipients were
Hakatere Ceramics, Glenys’ Dance Group, CanInspire Charitable Trust, Ashburton
Civic Music Council, Ashburton Youth Café Charitable Trust, Lauriston School,
Variety Theatre Ashburton, He Waka Tapu and Grace Gallery Ashburton.
“It is always a pleasure to present
our local artistic and creative groups with financial support through the
Creative Communities Scheme. The funding helps develop opportunities for the
community to participate in creative activities and enables people to engage
with the arts,” Council Community Relations Manager Vincie Billante says.
Applications for the first round of
Creative Communities Scheme funding closed on 31 August and were assessed by a
local committee with a background in the district’s varied arts community.
The second round of Creative
Communities Scheme funding for 2017/18 will open in March 2018.
