Increased support for craft/object makers and visual artists so they can undertake large-scale projects is one of the results of Creative New Zealand’s reviews of craft/object and visual arts in New Zealand.
In reports published today, the Arts Council approved changes to:
Creative New Zealand will continue to support the presentation of visual and craft/object art in non-commercial spaces as key roles in the multi-year Toi Tōtara Haemata (Arts Leadership) Investment Programme.
The review also recognised the need to support an organization to deliver a range of services for the craft/object sector including national promotion of high quality work by local artists as well as their creative and professional development.
The review was informed by focus groups from the craft/object and visual arts sectors. Draft reports with recommendations for each artform were published in June this year. In total 267 submissions were received on the reports, the majority via an online questionnaire.
Creative New Zealand regularly reviews its support for different artforms to ensure our resources are being used to effect to support them.
Our thanks goes to all those who took the time to contribute to our reviews.
