Introduction to the CCS

The Creative Communities Scheme (CCS) provides funding to communities so New Zealanders can be involved in local arts activities. The scheme supports a wide range of arts projects under the following art forms: craft/object arts, dance, inter-arts, literature, Māori Arts, multi-artform (including film), music, Pacific Arts, theatre and visual arts. Please refer to the glossary for the art form definitions. Please contact Creative New Zealand’s Creative Communities staff if you want to discuss any aspect of the scheme. Email: Phone: 0800 273 284
