NEW ONE-OFF CCS FESTIVAL FUNDING
CCS Festival Fund – Guidance for Applicants
The CCS Festival Fund is a one-off funding boost from Government, to support established festivals that celebrate the life experiences, stories, cultures, and regional identities of New Zealanders, that continue to be impacted by the effects of COVID-19 in 2023.
These funds are intended to help the sector adapt and thrive as we move away from the effects of COVID-19. It is expected that the funds will improve access, equity, and arts participation for all New Zealanders, and provide opportunities for the development of a resilient and sustainable arts sector.
CCS Festival Funds will be distributed through the normal Nelson City Creative Communities Scheme funding rounds closing on 1st September 2023 and on 11th March 2024 for any remaining unallocated funds. It is anticipated that the Nelson City Scheme shall receive approximately $15,000 toward Festivals Funding. Applicants can apply using the CCS application form, ensuring they include the word festival in the title or project description.
To apply, applicants must have delivered a festival at least once in the previous five years (this may include digital presentation). Applicants should include evidence of previous delivery in their application.
A festival (for the purpose of this fund) involves an integrated programme of events and activities featuring one or more artforms, from any cultural tradition, that takes place within a defined area or region over a designated period of time.
CCS Festival Funds can support eligible festivals that are delivered within 12 months of the grant notification.
Festivals can apply for operational, commissioning, development, and presentation costs. There is no maximum amount a single festival can apply for, but applicants should consider the total funds available and describe their specific plans for this one-off fund.
Festivals may only apply only once per funding round.
A strong application should demonstrate how the festival:
• Celebrates the life experiences, stories, and cultures of New Zealanders
• Improves access, equity arts participation
• Provides opportunities for the development of a resilient and sustainable arts sector
Note: All standard CCS guidelines and eligibility requirements also apply to this fund (see left).
