Creative New Zealand Community Arts Tool Kit

Community arts are created by, with and for a community. Creative New Zealand Community Arts Tool Kit: Keteparaha Mō Ngā Toi Hapori includes videos of New Zealanders sharing their experiences and what they've learned. There are also tip sheets, tools, and examples of successful projects and events to get you inspired. Visit Creative New Zealand's website 

Demonstrating the value of your work

Creative & INCredible Aotearoa aims to support artists and arts organisations to demonstrate the value of their work. Described as a basic 101 level resource, it helps you explore such things as gathering data and evidence; ways to tell stories about your work; and how to access support and links to further resources. It was created by Amber Walls and Rachael Trotman.
