Arts Organisations and Groups Fund - up to $50,000


UNLOCKED Member Content

Your Membership directly supports this content.

Funding for organisations and groups to deliver a programme of work for up to two years.

Who can apply

New Zealand-based arts organisations and groups who have a dynamic vision for the arts in Aotearoa and make a positive impact in their communities.

We expect arts organisations and groups are likely to:

  • have a defined purpose or vision
  • be engaged in ongoing activity
  • continue operating even if people change

We don’t expect all arts organisations and groups to have a formal strategic plan, professional staff, or to be a legal entity.

International arts organisations may apply only if the funding directly benefits New Zealand arts and artists.

Organisations in the Toi Tōtara Haemata or Toi Uru Kahikatea programmes cannot apply.
