WW100 community projects funding support

Wellingtonians who want to mark their local World War One centenary connections can apply for funding from the Council.

We are looking for ideas and ways in which people can share World War One stories through things like:

  • community arts and performances
  • community murals
  • exhibitions and displays
  • talks
  • tours
  • community events. 

Though we don't have a dedicated WW100 fund, we aim to support projects by:

  • using our existing funds, such as the Arts and Culture, and Social and Recreation funds
  • integrating your ideas with other planned projects or events.

Funding timeline

Our funding can help you with an activity or project you plan to do at any time up to 2019. Your idea does not need to be focused on Anzac Day 2015.  For information on closing dates, see our Funding Calendar.
