Kia ora - welcome to Arts Online

Arts Online is the key communication network and quality resource portal for New Zealand arts education.

There are three main sections to the site – teaching and learning resources, planning tools to support curriculum development, and email-based communities of practice for each of the arts disciplines.

The site also offers digistories, case studies, monthly newsletters and an option to share your local news events. All feedback is most welcome.

Creatives in Schools

Applications being considered for Round 1

Applications have closed for the first round of the Creatives in Schools programme, with 157 schools and kura applying to be involved. 

The successful 24 applicants will be advised toward the end of November, 2019.  

Because of the large number of applications, some schools may be invited to hold over their project until Round 2 in March 2020 (to deliver in Term 3 & 4, 2020).

Applications for 40 projects in Round 2 will close in April 2020. You can check our website for updates:  Creatives in schools .


For Creatives: Creative professionals or artists can continue to submit an expression of interest in being involved in the programme so their details can be included in the Arts Online list for schools and kura to consider as partners.


Creatives in Schools is a new programme in which professional artists and creative practitioners partner with schools and kura to share their specialist knowledge and creative practice with students/ākonga.

Creatives must submit an expression of interest to the Ministry of Education. Schools and kura work with one or more creatives to submit a joint proposal for a creative project lasting from 8 to 20 weeks.
