Creatives in Schools - EoI
Expression of Interest for Creatives
The Creatives in Schools programme is delivered by the Te Tāhuhu o te Mātauranga | Ministry of Education in partnership with the Ministry for Culture and Heritage Te Manatū Taonga and Creative New Zealand.
As a creative or group of creatives, there are two ways you can get involved in Creatives in Schools programme.
- If you already have a relationship with a school or kura, get in touch with them to see if they would like to develop a joint project and proposal with you.
- If you don’t have a relationship with a school or kura, or if you would like to make yourself available to a range of schools, then you can submit this expression of interest (EoI). The information you provide will be made available to schools and kura as a brief, anonymous profile on the Arts Online website. A school or kura can then request your contact details from the Ministry of Education and get in touch with you to plan a joint proposal.
You don’t need to provide a lot of information. If a school or kura is interested in what you can offer they will get in touch, and you can then develop the project idea together.
- Submitting this EoI doesn’t guarantee that you would get the project/funding. You are just making yourself available to schools and kura who may be interested in working with you. The best way moving forward is to submit this EoI and contact schools and kura in your region to see if they are interested in doing a creative project.
- It is not mandatory to submit this EoI, you can still apply for Creatives in Schools funding with a school and kura if you already have a relationship with them
- Art organisations, companies, and/or individuals can also apply for Creatives in Schools funding and submit this EoI. Creative organisations or companies will have to identify the individual creative(s) that will work with the school and kura and agree in advance how the creative fee of $10,000 will be given to the creative.
