Creative Bay of Plenty's purpose is to assist to create an environment where arts and culture thrive.
The Creative Bay Of Plenty CUSP framework guides our business as usual activity and defines the areas in which we influence and support the creative sector in the Bay of Plenty.
Connect: We connect creatives to organisations, people to projects and events to audiences
Upskill: We provide, or can direct you to workshops or consultations that build your business capability for a more sustainable sector
Support: We support our creative ecosystem to deliver the arts and culture strategy. We also support through funding administration, advice and act as a sounding board for new ideas or roadblocks.
Promote: We share your stories, events and initiatives so that more people get to participate in arts and culture every day.
