Eligibility for Building Business Capability for Individual Practitioners Fund
This fund is for individual artists and arts practitioners who are New Zealand citizens or permanent residents.
You must apply as an individual, not an organisation. However, we recognise an individual could be looking to develop business skills that benefit their organisation or company, eg for sole traders or owner/operators, and this fund can be used for that purpose.
Previous recipients of this fund are not eligible to apply.
Permanent staff members of Toi Uru Kahikatea or Toi Tōtara Haemata investment organisations are not eligible to apply. However, fixed-term employees or contractors may apply.
Annual Arts Grant recipients are eligible to apply in their capacity as individuals, not organisations, and only for a new project, or new project phase that extends beyond what Creative New Zealand currently funds you to deliver.
Members of a collective can apply separately as individuals and can apply for the same type of activity, or the same tools or provider. Each application will be assessed on its own merits.
