Applications are invited for the second round of Creatives in Schools, which can be implemented at any time during Terms 1 to 4 in 2021.

Applications will close on 21 August 2020 and the successful schools and kura will be confirmed late October 2020.

There is an expansion in this initiative due to the COVID-19 situation being funded through Budget 2020. With the new funding there will be an increase in the total number of projects from 304 to 510 over the next three years (up to 2023).

Each project will be a high-calibre and in-depth engagement lasting from 8 to 20 weeks.

Teachers and creative practitioners work in partnership on projects that provide creative learning opportunities for students and ākonga.

There is funding available to schools and kura for teacher release time, working with the creative practitioners on the planning and reporting involved and some projects materials.
