Nominate an emerging artist for the Springboard programme

Posted Wednesday 09 Dec 2020

The Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi's newest award, Springboard programme, is open for nominations for the 2021 programme. WIFT NZ member Matasila Freshwater was one of the six recipients for 2020.

Springboard aims to kickstart arts careers for up to six artists in Aotearoa every year with a big emphasis on mentoring from our alumni of Arts Foundation Laureates, Icons, New Generation, Residency or Fellowship recipients.

The award gives emerging artists the gift of $15,000 to work alongside their senior arts mentor. The selection process focuses on awarding creatives with outstanding potential who want to start careers in a variety of arts disciplines.

Nominations close 14 December so be quick (although it shouldn't be hard to think of a deserving woman in the screen industry!)
