Quick Response Grant

All Artforms

Quick Response Grants are our most common form of funding. They are awarded in three rounds per year and available to all artforms. As our smallest and most numerous opportunity Quick Response Grants are a great place to start if you are new to Creative New Zealand Funding.

Activities Funded

Quick Response Grants help New Zealand artists, arts practitioners and arts organisations to create and distribute their work nationally and internationally. They can also support professional and skills development as well as arts projects in your community.

In the past we've helped musicians to tour, writers to be published, sent artists to overseas arts fairs and much, much more.

Applying

You will need to complete an application form which includes a proposal and budget template.
