CREATIVE NZ



Website: http://www.creativenz.govt.nz/

PLEASE NOTE: Complete applications must be received by 1pm on the relevant closing date.

In order to be flexible, responsive and responsible funders, on 20 March 2020 Creative New Zealand suspended funding programmes that were open, due to open or with applications being assessed. This was to acknowledge that many projects could no longer take place in the way they were originally conceived. Many people’s personal circumstances had also dramatically changed. Suspending programmes has enabled the organisation to concentrate its efforts on the emergency response and to begin making decisions on applications for the new grants earlier than the now-suspended programmes would have been decided.
