The new Arts Council of New Zealand Toi Aotearoa Act 2014 Act which streamlines the governance of Creative New Zealand takes effect today.
The Act introduces a new Arts Council to replace three statutory boards and a statutory committee under previous legislation. The Arts Council will continue to operate under the name Creative New Zealand.
The single Arts Council will be responsible for policy, strategy and funding allocation, replacing the previous division of responsibilities between the Arts Council, the Arts Board, Te Waka Toi and the Pacific Arts Committee.
