Creative New Zealand increases arts sector investment by $27 million and confirms 80 arts organisations for its investment programmes

Eighty New Zealand arts organisations are confirmed in Creative New Zealand’s Investment programmes over the next two to six years, following Arts Council approval in July this year.

This comprises 23 organisations in the Toi Tōtara Haemata (Tōtara) programme and 57 organisations in the Toi Uru Kahikatea (Kahikatea) programme.

Due to the number of high-quality proposals received, we have decided to draw from financial reserves (largely reserves from ‘windfall’ lottery funding) to create an arts investment portfolio fit for the future needs of the arts in New Zealand – including increasing access to the arts and contributing to fairer remuneration for arts practitioners.

This represents an increase of approximately $27 million into the arts sector over the next 6 years.
