Creatives in schools

Creatives in Schools - child and creative

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.

The creative learning experience will enhance the wellbeing of students/ākonga and develop their knowledge and skills in communication, collaboration, and creative thinking and practice. It will also raise their awareness of careers in the arts and creative sectors and benefit their preparedness for the future of work.

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.

Funding

Funding will enable Creatives in Schools projects in 304 schools and kura in the first four years of the programme.

The table below shows the three available funding streams for a creative project.
