The Creative Communities Scheme supports art activities throughout the Waimakariri district, but you may be wondering how it can apply to your practice as an artist or creative practitioner. Join us at the gallery to explore ideas, with our friend and board member, Ilona Rogers. You may be surprised by what can be funded!
