When we assess a culturally-specific heritage arts application, we replace the concept of Kaupapa Pasifika with, for example, Kaupapa Samoa, Kaupapa Fiji, Kaupapa Tonga, and so on, for the specific Island group. This is equivalent to the commonly used terms “Fa’a Samoa”, “Vaka Viti” or “Faka Tonga”, meaning “the Samoan way”, “the Fijian way”, or “the Tongan way”, and so on.
We also list succcessful applicants on the who got funded web page.
If you are successful, we will contact you about your funding agreement, payment schedule and reporting requirements.
A project completion report is required within 12 weeks of the project end date using the report template. To be considered for further funding, your report needs to be submitted on time.
