Cultural Sector Regeneration Fund
CLOSES 26 SEPTEMBER 2022
The Cultural Sector Regeneration Fund is designed to support the arts, culture and heritage sectors to recover from the impacts of COVID-19, and help the sector thrive in the future. We’re looking to find and fund strategic, sector-led initiatives, that will have lasting benefits for arts, culture, and heritage in Aotearoa New Zealand.
The Regeneration Fund replaces planned funding rounds of the Capability Fund, Creative Arts Recovery and Employment Fund and the Innovation Fund with a single outcome-focused approach, making it easier for people to apply.
The fund has five outcomes:
- Improved sustainability and resilience of the arts, culture and heritage sectors
- Improved safeguarding of Mātauranga Māori and support of Toi Māori
- Improved access and participation in arts, culture and heritage sectors
- Increased the use of arts, culture and heritage as a tool to improve wellbeing
- Increased employment and skill development opportunities.
There is currently $28 million available to support initiatives that have the strongest potential to contribute toward these outcomes. Read the related announcement about the fund.
