Creativity funded in Waipā

13 June 2018 

More than $21,000 has been allocated to a variety of creative events and projects in Waipā.

The Creative Communities Scheme​, administered by Waipa District Council and funded by Creative New Zealand, is supporting eight applications from its April round. The fund is aimed at promoting and supporting local arts and cultural events, projects and programmes.

Assessment committee member Marcus Gower said it was great to see a wide range of applications this round. 

“It’s exciting to see these projects coming into the Waipā. This round we are supporting a range of projects from a puppet show and workshop to a country music festival and the Cambridge Autumn Festival.”

The committee received a total of eight applications and every application received funding. For a full list of recipients, visit waipadc.govt.nz/creativecommunities​.

The round is open twice a year with the next round set for September 2018.
