International activity

Funding is available to support New Zealand artists, practitioners and organisations to engage in a variety of international activity, including the presentation of art works. In the short to medium-term, given current travel restrictions, we anticipate that activity involving an artist’s or practitioner’s participation will occur virtually. For artists currently based in New Zealand, you will only be eligible to apply for Creative New Zealand’s support for international travel related costs from New Zealand if the government travel advisory permits international travel at the time your application is submitted. We encourage you to visit www.safetravel.govt.nz and, in particular, read the COVID-19 advice and specific country information. If the advice is not to travel at the time your application is submitted, Creative New Zealand will only support costs where the project is taking place, and you will need to find other financial support to cover the travel related costs e.g flights, travel insurance, visas and quarantine accommodation if you choose to travel. If you travel internationally from New Zealand, or are an artist based overseas, and further travel is required for the project (domestic or international), you will be required to provide confirmation about the official travel advice from the Government of the country you are residing in and/or travelling to.
