Creative New Zealand is seeking submissions on the way it supports music and musicians in New Zealand to help it develop funding priorities and policies for music for the next five years (2013-2017).
Creative New Zealand regularly consults with the arts sector to make sure its funding priorities, programmes and initiatives keep pace with new arts practices and the changing arts environment.
As part of the consultation Creative New Zealand has published a Music Discussion Paper and is inviting feedback on the questions raised in it.
The discussion paper summarises the activities and infrastructure which make up New Zealand’s music sector and the different sources of support for it. It sets out Creative New Zealand’s contribution to the sector and explains the principles that guide that support.
The feedback will help Creative New Zealand to decide:
its roles and responsibilities for New Zealand music
what its development priorities should be for New Zealand music
what parts of New Zealand’s music infrastructure Creative New Zealand should fund music organisations to develop and maintain over the next five years
how funding and other programmes will support New Zealand music and musicians over the next five years.
The deadline for submissions is 5pm, 17 May 2013. They can be made online or in hard copy. Information on how to provide a submission is in the discussion paper.
