The Creative Communities Scheme supports and encourages local communities to create and present diverse opportunities for accessing and participating in arts activities.
Under the scheme, 'the arts' are broadly defined as 'all forms of creative and interpretative expression'. This includes opportunities for creative participation in theatre, music, visual arts, digital art, applied arts, arts education, Toi Maori, literary workshops, digital storytelling, and many other activities.
