What was funded 2019

In July 2019 you submitted a wide range of ambitious and exciting community embedded creative arts projects. The total amount requested was $149,900, three times the available funding. The 12 projects funded for the upcoming year (July 2019 – June 2020) celebrate the Whau’s creative edge, amplify the diverse voices of the whau through the arts and ensure our tamariki and rangatahi have access to the arts.
