If you have an arts or heritage project that you can provide resources for, but need financial help to get over the line, our Arts/Heritage Partnership grants might be able to help.

Arts/Heritage Partnership Grants are intended to support the community in delivery of two key strategies - the Taonga Tuku Iho Heritage Strategy and the He Tatai Whetu Arts and Creativity Strategy.

Arts/Heritage Partnership Grants are available at any time, for delivery in the Council’s current financial year (July to June). To help meet planning timeframes, applications are assessed on a rolling basis, so there are no submission deadlines. We endeavour to get back to applicants within 10 working days.

To honour Kaupapa Māori, you can request a kanohi ki te kanohi application hui. After that hui, we will separately consider your proposal and get back to you with an offer if we can support it. It’s as simple as that! To book a kaupapa Māori application process, contact Tom Ransom, Arts and Heritage Adviser on tom.ransom@ncc.govt.nz
