Are you a Franklin based performer, musician, creative or artist?
We are looking for Franklin based individuals and organisations to submit ideas for creative projects that happen in and with local communities. For the 2019 / 2020, we are specifically looking for projects that fall within the following areas:
Projects in rural halls
Franklin is fortunate to have a great network of community halls in rural areas, and we’d like to support more creative activity in these spaces. Perhaps you would you like to run a workshop, put on a show, or do something else creative? If so, this is your opportunity to apply for funding to do this.
Projects focused on specific geographic communities
Some of our neighbourhoods are undergoing great population growth, with lots of new people moving into the area. Creative projects are one way all members of a community can come together and start to get to know each other, and there is funding available to support this.
Projects focused on the Franklin Local Board’s environmental objectives.
These objectives are:
Reducing animal and pest weeds
Improving water quality in waterways, along the coastline, and on beaches
Reduce waste to landfill
Improve connectivity between outdoor areas and help use increase use.
If you have an idea for a creative project that can support one of the above objectives, there is funding available for this.
Other information As this scheme is broader than just a funding programme, the arts broker programme can provide funding and other project support in a number of ways, from assistance navigating Council processes to connecting you with other creative people or community organisations or writing a press release - let's talk about what you might need to make the project happen.
The project must take place in the Franklin Local Board area* between August 2019 and June 2020.
Making an application To submit a proposal, you’ll need to let us know: - what your idea is, who's involved, when you plan to do it, and what the community involvement or outcomes are. - a budget
Your project must: - have a strong creative idea driving it - fit within one of the project areas listed above - give equal weight to creative ideas and community benefit - have strong local connections
Proposals are due by 5pm on Friday July 19, 2019 and should be completed online at this link:
