Creative Communities Fund application form

Before you prepare your application please read the Creative Communities Scheme Application Guide.

This guide tells you:

  • Whether you are able to apply for Creative Communities Scheme funding for your project
  • Which projects and costs are eligible and ineligible
  • What information you will need to include in your application.

Note: Council, alongside Creative New Zealand, has undertaken a review of the Creative Community Scheme process to streamline the process for both our decision-makers and customers.

As a result of the review the form has been amended as follows:

  • Applications will have a maximum word count of 500 words for the 5 specific questions.
  • Applicants are limited in the amount of information that can be uploaded as attachments.  Applicants are encouraged to include electronic links within their applications, if needed.
  • Applicants will no longer be required to present their applications in person or by virtual means. 

If you have any questions, please email
