We are now accepting Expressions of Interest (EOI) for FUNDING for community arts projects in Franklin region, Auckland. Join the vital, inspiring and forward-thinking groups and individuals that make Franklin such a great place to live and work. All projects with a community arts focussed between September 2022 and June 2023 are eligible.

The Franklin Local Board Arts Broker scheme is a small fund designed to respond to local creative arts activities and ventures. In the past we have helped support community art events, artist workshops, theatrical and musical productions, festivals, public artworks, development opportunities, weekly meet-ups, youth and schools art projects. Our aim is to invigorate local arts opportunities for people working and living across the Franklin region, enabling access and creating opportunities for anyone engaging with the arts, they may be professional or amateur artists. The arts benefit our communities in many ways; finding ways to think and act collectively, raising awareness of important issues, enabling participation with people from different backgrounds. Last year we supported an abundance of projects that managed to find a way through lockdowns, slow-downs and postponements to bring people together to make, enjoy, experience art and culture.

GET IN TOUCH - No idea is too big or too small, tell us where your idea/group/obsession/interest is at and we’ll help guide you to make an application. Sometimes we can find ways to steer you towards other funding opportunities if that suits your project better. Contact the Arts Broker, Stephen Bain, at if you have questions or would like help putting your idea into words.

SPREAD IT LIKE A VIRUS – Let people know that EOIs are now open for Community Arts Grant funding. If you value the arts like we do, you’ll know that the best things in life are enjoyed by everyone.
