Workshop: Raising Funds For the Creative Arts 
20 March 2018

The first ARTillery Workshop was held by Creative Bay Of Plenty on the 20 March 2018. 'Raising Funds For The Creative Arts' was created to demystify the funding sourcing and submission processes for individuals and organisations within the the creative sector.  This is the first in a series of workshops designed to be affordable, accessible, interactive and practical, enabling participants to work on their own project during the workshop and can immediately apply learnings in the real world.

This workshop was developed by Creative Waikato with the support of Creative New Zealand.

Multicultural Festival - 24 March 2018

On Saturday 24 March the team from Creative Bay Of Plenty took part in the Multicultural Festival held at the Wharapai Domain in Tauranga. The sun shone down on a colourful parade where traditional costumes were proudly worn by people of all ages. The event showcased the beauty, flavours, sights and sounds of diverse cultural community. It was a feast for the senses and was great to meet and celebrate with everyone who attended.
