International touring, presentations and exhibitions

Funding is available for international touring, presenting and exhibiting distinctive, high quality art by New Zealand artists and practitioners.

You can apply for up to $50,000.

A strong application would include:

  • A letter of confirmation from the host, presenter or partner
  • Evidence the host, presenter or partner is contributing financially to the project, including fees
  • A international strategy or an explanation of your long-term international goals
  • Marketing and promotion plans
  • A timeline or itinerary
  • Information about the work’s previous presentation track record
  • Evidence of partners having sufficient experience and resources to deliver the project successfully
  • Evidence of an appropriate box-office share arrangement, if applicable
  • Evidence that you understand the financial risks and have strategies to mitigate them

We do not fund international companies/casts to perform New Zealand music, dance or theatre for an international audience.
