Local Arts Funding Scheme

Kawerau District Council administers the Creative Communities Scheme, which is funded by Creative New Zealand. Creative New Zealand is a central government agency and is New Zealand's main organisation for funding of the arts. The purpose of the Creative Communities Scheme is to increase participation in arts in the Kawerau District and increase the range and diversity of arts available to Communities.
