Creative New Zealand will call for tenders for selected key roles in New Zealand’s arts infrastructure in 2013. This will include a tender for a key role for theatre in Wellington that will be funded through Creative New Zealand’s Toi Tōtara Haemata (Arts Leadership) Investment programme. Before we finalise tender documents for this key role we want to hear from individuals and organisations that have an interest in how Creative New Zealand assesses and supports high-quality theatre in Wellington. Your response can help us improve our assessment process and investment decisions. In this document we provide information about the Toi Tōtara Haemata Investment programme and describe the key role for theatre in Wellington. We also summarise our current assessment criteria for the programme. Creative New Zealand will take account of your views and suggestions before we finalise the tender documents.
