Kākano Funding applications will be opening hot on the heels of registrations on Monday the 17th of October and this year NZ Fringe is thankful for the inclusion and additional support from Wellington City Council’s Living Wage Fund. 

We’re also delighted to announce the newly CNZ-funded ‘FATU’ fund. Specifically targeted support for our budding Pasifika artists, with this year’s funding focus on emerging Pasifika writers. This funding round will be opening in mid-September and we will be sure to keep you all posted about pending dates!
