Arts Funding in Aotearoa – Annie Hill

As those working in the arts sector know, it’s difficult to raise money for creative projects and the small pool of funding means that sometimes very worthwhile initiatives lose out.

However, ensuring you make the very best job of writing your funding application will increase your chances of success in a competitive market. I have seven main tips to make your next funding application stand out from the crowd, whatever fund you are applying to.

Most funds have criteria that applications must meet, so my first tip is to ensure your initiative is a good fit for at least one of these criteria. Talk to the funder before you even start – they know the strategic outcomes they want to achieve and can provide invaluable information to strengthen your approach. If it’s difficult to fit your project into their criteria, consider looking for a more suitable funder.
