2022 Arts & Culture Capability Fund - Opening 31st May

Sue Stewart —

Otago Community Trust reminds Arts & Culture organisations based in the Dunedin City boundary that its Arts & Culture Capability Fund will be open for applications from 31st May 2022.

This contestable fund is jointly run with the Dunedin City Council and is only available to Arts & Culture organisations based in the Dunedin City boundary which are committed to supporting and contributing to Ara Toi Otepoti: Our Creative Future - Dunedin’s Arts and Culture Strategy.

Organisations may apply for up to $10,000 for assistance with arts capability building. The fund’s priority will be to support organisations that are interested in collaborating with others and to support the sustainability, development and innovation of arts and culture groups across the city.

Applying for capability building assistance does not prevent organisations from making a regular grant application to the Otago Community Trust or a grant funding application to the Dunedin City Council.

Fund Closes: 31st August 2022, with outcomes announced in October.

How to Apply: 

Apply online via the Otago Community Trust online grants portal, this is accessed via the Otago Community Trust website - www.oct.org.nz.
