Nominations are currently being sought for community representatives to join the Creative Communities Assessment Committee for the Christchurch area for 2018/2019 to 2020/2021.
The Creative Communities Fund
The Creative Communities Fund supports and encourages local communities to create and present diverse opportunities for accessing and participating in arts activities in Christchurch.
This fund is available to both community groups and individuals and is for all forms of creative and interpretative expression. It can be based around a place, a cultural tradition or commonly held interests or experiences.
Creative Communities Assessment Committee
We are looking for enthusiastic and creative people to join our assessment committee to help allocate this funding. This opportunity is open to anyone living in the Christchurch area who is involved and has a wide interest in the arts.
Community representatives on the Creative Communities Assessment Committee should (ideally) have:
- interest and involvement in local arts community issues/groups
- some experience in committee processes
- knowledge of various communities of interest
- ability to be articulate and assertive.
You can be nominated by a group or you can nominate yourself to serve on this committee. The term of office is for three years and is on a voluntary basis.
You would be required to attend an annual briefing and must be available to attend the decision meetings in April and October for each consecutive year.
The current Creative Communities Assessment Committee will appoint members to reflect the local community character, with representatives coming from the areas of local Iwi, Community Arts Council and an arts and cultural background.
Nominations close at 5pm on Friday 30 March 2018. For more information and a nomination form please contact Ruby Sione on 941 6288 or email@example.com
