We are looking for Franklin based individuals and organisations to submit ideas for creative projects that happen in rural halls throughout the area. There is funding available to support two - three projects.
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. Within this year already, we've seen Steampunk workshops, mural projects, and performances and exhibitions, but we know there is space for more.
Note that your project must have both creative and community benefit outcomes; if you're not sure that your idea fits the bill, please get in touch. If you are a hall committee that is interested in setting something up, but aren't sure where to start or who to work with, we can assist! Let us know in the application form.
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*. The project should begin sometime in 2020; exact dates are flexible, given the current situation with Covid-19.
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 - give equal weight to creative ideas and community benefit - have strong local connections
Proposals are due by 5pm on Thursday 16 April, 2020 and should be completed online at this link:
