North Taranaki Community Arts Council


The North Taranaki Community Arts Council supports creative expression and participation in the arts within the community, meeting once a month to consider applications for grants which will now be awarded only in August and January.

Projects or activities supported may involve any art forms or mixture of art forms, including: dance, visual arts, sculpture, theatre, music, crafts, literature, recreational or traditional arts, to name but a few.

As long as the project or activity benefits your community through encouraging participation and interest in the arts, you may qualify for assistance with funding.

At the very least, we can offer advice!
For applications and/or more information, write to:
The Secretary,
P O Box 8008,

Chairperson - Jan Huijbers 753 6104

The funding system for the NTCAC has changed.
From now on NTCAC can only provide funding twice a year, in February and August.

The committee will still meet each month to consider applications as they arrive, but grants can be awarded only in those two months.

Applications close 5.00 p.m. on February 6 2013 for projects that begin after March 1 2013 when applicants are notified of funding decisions.
Next closing dates: August 7th 2013, February 5th 2014.
Late applications will not be considered.

All meetings are at the Patten Academy, Liardet Street
