ENABLING NEW ARTS
& CULTURE INITIATIVES.

Enhancing the lives of people in our community.

The Three Lakes Cultural Trust has been established to encourage and support the arts and culture life in the Lakes District in ways that will enrich the quality of life of residents and that will contribute to the cultural, social and economic vitality and resilience of the District. The reference to “Three Lakes” aspires to embrace the full geography of the District,

Our purpose is to enhance the lives of people in our district through fostering new arts and culture initiatives.

Our vision is to help create a vibrant, diverse and distinct arts and cultural district that enriches the lives of people within the Three Lakes Region, now and through time.

Funding Applications

The district’s first ever cultural study was commissioned by the Trust and AEA Consulting to undertake an indicative cultural strategy for the Queenstown Lakes District to inform the trust’s grant giving and advocacy activities.

In due course, the trust will establish a procedure for the submission of grant requests by individuals, unincorporated entities, operating charities and private sector entities. The criteria for allocation will address the strategic contribution of the incoming grant proposal to the cultural vitality of the District together with the applicant’s capacity to execute the proposal.
