Kia ora friend of the arts,

As signalled, we’ve opened a number of funding opportunities this week. It’ll be 2020 before we know it! This special edition newsletter highlights these newly-opened funds and provides other key funding updates, so you have the information you need ahead of the Christmas and New Year break.

Key reminders:

  • See our new funding calendar to June 2020
  • Closing times for all funding opportunities in 2020 will be changing from 5pm on a Friday to 1pm on a Friday.
  • Our offices are closed from 5pm Tuesday 24 December, reopening on Monday 6 January.

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season.
