Creative New Zealand is developing a new Pacific Arts Strategy to guide the way we encourage, promote and support Pacific arts over the next five years. The Strategy will help direct and prioritise Creative New Zealand’s Pacific arts investment between 2018 and 2023.
The Strategy’s scope is wide-ranging. Its vision and goals will apply across all of Creative New Zealand’s programmes and policies. The Strategy won’t just be limited to our dedicated Pacific arts funding and assessment processes – it’ll also apply to our general arts funding category, our investments, grants, international, capability and advocacy programmes, as well as guide future initiatives and pilots.
We’re excited by this work but we can’t do it alone. We need to hear and understand your aspirations for Pacific arts. In this discussion paper we outline the themes and approaches we are thinking about. We want your views on our thinking to date and how our approach might be improved.
