Kia ora tātou

Creatives in School is a funded partnership between Creative NZ and the Ministry of Education. Creatives are paid to work with a school(s) to undertake a project that encourages creativity. Teachers involved and schools are also paid for their time and the additional administration. The total fund per project is $17,000. The 4th Round of applications is open and closes on the 21st August. If you’re interested (or have been unsuccessful in the past), I’d strongly recommend reading the FAQs and also attending one of the webinars. 


In my conversation with the Creatives in Schools team, many applications don’t even make it to the discussion stage of the process as they don’t meet the basic requirements. For examples the project must be between 8-20 weeks in duration, so if your proposal is 3 weeks long it doesn't fit. 


There haven't been as many musical projects applied for or accepted as some of the other arts. Looking through the successful round 3 applications I can see a number of music examples but it would be great if more schools could tap into this create project. 


Perhaps if you’ve been successful with a project, you’d like to share what impact it has had on your students and department?
