The Arts Foundation

2019 Springboard

Springboard aims to kickstart arts careers for emerging artists in Aotearoa, thanks to funding from our community and support from our business club and alumni of Laureates.

A new programme for the Arts Foundation, Springboard supports up to ten artists each year with a financial award of $15,000, alongside a partnership with a senior artist mentor or past Arts Foundation award winner, to help assist them with the next aspect of their career, bringing the programme value to $25,000 for one year.

Springboard is intended for emerging artists aspiring to kickstart a career in the arts.

The process will be announced in October and funds will be raised at New Zealand Arts Ball on 31 August. Applications to nominate artists will open November.

If you would like to contribute to the Springboard awards programme and you are not attending the Ball, please contact Arts Foundation Lead, Jo Blair: jo@thearts.co.nz
