Ngā Puninga Toi ā-Ahurea me ngā Kaupapa | Cultural Installations and Events

Manatū Taonga Fund

19 April 2021

Manatū Taonga is providing support to the cultural sector to develop and transform our landscape, bringing culture and creativity to people.

Funding is available to create installations and events. They must be free to experience and bring culture and creativity to people in our communities. They’ll need to be in easy to access spaces people regularly go or are easy to discover, such as community hubs, shopping malls, parks, beaches, marae, churches, reserves, or along a waterfront.

Applications are now open for between $1,000 and $20,000. There are two rounds of funding in 2021.

This funding aims to create employment and skill development opportunities for cultural practitioners and allow more people to participate in our cultural sector.

Round one opened on 9 April and closes on 7 May.

See the Ministry of Culture and Heritage for eligibility criteria and how to apply.
