Creative New Zealand’s review of ‘interarts’ and ‘multidisciplinary’ arts has resulted in greater clarity in how we define and fund these disciplines through our programmes.
New funding guidelines and definitions for the terms have been agreed by the Arts Council and will take effect from 1 July 2015. Revised key roles have also been agreed for multidisciplinary arts organisations and festivals funded through the Toi Tōtara Haemata (Arts Investment) programme.
Interarts and multidisciplinary arts are defined as follows:
Creative New Zealand has revised and clarified the two key roles for multi-disciplinary arts in the Toi Tōtara Haemata programme. These are:
Through the Toi Tōtara Haemata and also the Toi Uru Kahikatea Investment programmes, Creative New Zealand will fund a multidisciplinary arts festival from 5% to 12% of its total revenue, depending on the activities being undertaken.
These guidelines apply only to festivals supported through the investment programmes. They will affect all new contracts from 1 July 2015.
Creative New Zealand will also continue to offer funding for multidisciplinary arts through its Quick Response and Arts Grants.
By February 2016, Creative New Zealand will publish a request for proposals from organisations interested in filling the key roles in multidisciplinary arts under the
Toi Tōtara Haemata programme.
Any new funding agreements for the roles will be offered from January 2017.
Creative New Zealand has published the Review of Interarts and Multidisciplinary Arts Final Report on our website.
