Creative New Zealand responds to Canterbury earthquake

Creative New Zealand expresses its deepest sympathies to the people of Canterbury following yesterday’s devastating earthquake. The immediate priority for all New Zealanders is the search and rescue operation and to support the many people who have suffered great personal tragedy and loss. Creative New Zealand will be working to support the arts community in Canterbury and hopes to have a clearer picture of the overall impact of the earthquake in the coming weeks and months. We appreciate that this will take time and we will work alongside the community as they assess their losses.
