Creative Communities Scheme recipients announced
The Kāpiti Coast District Council Grants Allocation Committee has awarded the Creative Communities Scheme funds to 22 applicants across a wide range of arts projects.
The scheme helps artists and community organisations establish and implement local art initiatives and is a partnership programme between Kāpiti Coast District Council and Creative New Zealand.
Chair of the Grants Allocation Subcommittee, Councillor Jackie Elliott, says the committee was thrilled to receive so many quality applications from across the district.
“I want to thank everyone who made a submission. It’s a real testament to the vibrant creative sector we have here in Kāpiti.
