Creative Communities Assessment Committee

The purpose of the assessment committee is to make decisions about the allocation of funds from Creative New Zealand through the Creative Communities Funding Scheme.

The assessment committee meets twice a year (usually March and September) to set local priorities, assess applications, and make funding decisions. Co-opted members must also be available to attend a Creative Communities briefing prior to taking up a position on the assessment committee.

We are currently seeking a representative who has a comprehensive knowledge of Hauraki District’s community arts sector, to sit as members of this assessment committee.

The committee will reflect Hauraki District’s demographic diversity (especially cultural and ethnic). Your expertise needs to be broad-based, rather than confined to any one particular arts activity or organisation and you must also reside within Hauraki District boundaries.

For further information please contact the Creative NZ Administrator at the Paeroa office (07) 862 8609.
