Arts Event Fund

* indicates a required field.

Purpose of the fund

Through the Arts Event Fund, Palmerston North City Council will invest in events that contribute to Council’s vision for the City, in particular, Goal Two: A creative and exciting city. Council recognises the opportunities that arise from hosting significant events in Palmerston North, both in terms of economic growth and in developing the city as an arts powerhouse. 

To be considered for funding, the event must: 

  • Have the arts as a central focus.
  • Be of significant regional, national or international importance.
  • Be accessible to the community.
  • Positively profile the city of Palmerston North; and 
  • Provide an economic benefit for Palmerston North. 

See the Community Funding Policy for more information on criteria and eligibility. 

For help, contact Gillian Tasker at gillian.tasker@pncc.govt.nz or 06 356 8199.
