Funding available for community events

Are you planning a community event? Do you need a great space with lots of facilities?

With funding from the Community Access Grant, you could hold your event at the Dunedin Centre or Forsyth Barr Stadium.

Community groups can apply for funds to help towards event costs such as venue hire and security. The funding has been used for a wide range of events across both venues, including a movie day on the pitch, which will be held next Sunday 10 February to raise funds for Cat Rescue Dunedin. 

There are a variety of spaces at the two venues including conference rooms, suites and lounges, so we have something to suit almost any type of event. To search our spaces and venues, use our Venue Select tool

The next round of funding is now open and applications will close on 1 March at 5pm.
