You need to provide the actual dates and activity statistics for each funded activity that took place during the 6-month period of your report. Refer to these activity reporting guidelines when completing your 6-month report and contact your adviser if you need more information.
Unknown activities when your programme and budget was confirmed
Changes to funded activities
Activities not funded by Creative New Zealand
Activities that did not take place in the 6-month period
If the detail of your activities was unknown when you confirmed your programme and budget, you need to add individual activity records that show the detail for each activity that took place during the 6-month period. This includes (but is not limited to) the following activities:
Tours with 'National' as the location
In your 6 Month Report you must provide the actual dates, number of participants*, events and attendances for each local authority toured to.
Do not edit the original "National" tour activity record.
Instead, click + Add a new activity and complete the details of the first tour location, noting you can not enter projected dates or statistics for new activities.
Click Save then Clone.
This will create a copy of the activity. Most of the information in the cloned activity will be read-only but you can select the next location, the actual start and end dates, enter the venue details (if relevant) and statistics for the location.
*If the same participants are involved at each tour location only report the number of participants for the first tour location.
Theatre or festival programmes where the individual works were not known
Do not edit the original combined activity record.
Instead, click + Add a new activity for each work, and complete the details including the name of the work, actual dates, number of presentations and attendances, noting you can not enter projected dates or statistics for new activities.
If there were material changes to a funded activity, provide a brief commentary on what was different and why.
Note: A planned major variation to your programme or financial result requires prior approval from the Manager, Investment Services before the report's due date.
Major variations resulting from Covid-19 alert level shifts do not require prior approval. If the variation is a clear impact of an alert level shift, it will not negatively impact CNZ's assessment of your delivery to the criteria.
See Guidelines - Major and Minor Variations
You do not need to edit or add activities that were not funded by Creative New Zealand.
All funded activities for the year will be visible in the Activity section, but you only need to edit funded activities that were projected to take place during the 6-month period.
