Elevate Programme by Creative Waikato

Creative Waikato, is a non-profit organisation that has been working to help the arts, support the community, and make creative things happen since 2012.

They develop, support and champion Waikato arts and culture by understanding the unique needs of our bold and ambitious creative sector.

Continuing their support of artists in the region, a fresh, learn-your-way version of Creative Waikato’s Elevate Programme is open for applications now, boasting the same game-changing content, in an even more accessible format.

The programme is available for highly motivated creative practitioners aged 18 to 64 years, who are eligible to work in New Zealand and are residing in the Waikato region.

The previous version’s barrier of needing to allocate a full day’s Mahi to attending live weekly workshops has been replaced with a suite of pre-recorded workshops that participants can work through in their own time, around their schedules.

All the artist needs is self-motivation, Internet access, currently residing in Waikato, and their eyes set on achieving a sustainable, financially viable creative career.

“It has been awesome to see how the ELEVATE programme has continued to develop.” Says Creative Waikato CEO, Dr Jeremy Mayall.

Aside from the workshops, participants can expect a Professional Development Plan, monthly online hui’s, and support from industry experts at Creative Waikato.

“This next iteration of the programme is all about accessibility.” Shares Mayall. “It has been designed to provide additional flexibility, where you can set your timeframes, work to your schedule, still get all the information and resources, and become part of a supportive community of creative professionals as well. We are excited to see where ELEVATE creatives will take their work next!”

Participants can exit the programme at any time and can simply follow the process to enrol themselves and gain access to the knowledge and support bank available at Creative Waikato to realise their individual success plans.
