In our March 2015 funding round, Creative New Zealand has offered 97 grants and scholarships to support New Zealand artists, practitioners and arts organisations.
Around three-quarters of the funding in the March round goes to Arts Grants applicants. Arts Grants help New Zealand artists, arts practitioners and arts organisations to create and distribute their work nationally and internationally. They can also support professional and skills development as well as arts projects in the community. Each grant is up to $65,000.
There are two Arts Grants rounds each year with the next round closing on 28 August 2015
Funding offered in the March round totalled $2.615 million, which is a little over a quarter of our annual grants funding (including Sector Development Initiatives). More than $5.672 million was requested by 211 applicants.
