Calling all Creatives! We want to help you to reach your full potential.

Our Create funding programme is for emerging and established creative practitioners across all art forms. It supports a range of activities and creates opportunities that will enable you to grow creatively. 

Funding is available to individuals under three categories:

1.       Recognition & Achievement

2.       Creative Skill Development

3.       Presentation, Production, Presentation, Exhibition & Touring

For more information please download the Create guidelines here  or to apply click here or contact our grants team on 0800 500 185. 

Applications are welcome throughout the year. Funding amounts will vary depending on the activity being undertaken, see the guidelines for more details of the amounts available.

Please note, Create is piloted for a two year period and as it is a pilot it may be subject to change during this time. If there are any changes, we will make sure that all our marketing material including the Community Trust of Southland website reflects all of the updates.

Besides funding for individuals through our Create programme, we also support the Arts sector through our granting programme.  For further information or to discuss your specific project or programme please contact us on 0800 500 185 or email
