By the close of 2018, our generous community had gifted 205 artists with awards totalling $6 million. Award recipients include writers, choreographers, screen artists, visual artists, theatre practitioners and musicians.
In 2013 we launched Boosted, New Zealand’s art crowdfunding platform. Boosted crowdfunding campaigns have an 85% success rate for its artists, and the platform has raised over $5 million for art projects since its launch.
In 2019 the Foundation sets out to rally a nationwide community backing artists to make their mark. This year we’re launching New Zealand Arts Month, the Arts Ball, and Springboard, four funded opportunities for talented young artists needing a springboard to a career in the arts. It’s a new ambitious era for the Foundation, and we want you right there with us.
