Chartwell advocates for and supports research around the benefits and value of the arts for us all- from parents to political leaders, educators to students, researchers to the general public, and from community funders to central government.
The Creative Thinking Project
At the heart of the project is the aim to start a global conversation about creativity. Chartwell fervently believes that everyone is born creative; but along the way, as we grow up, far too many of us come to think of creativity as a special talent that only applies to a few.
Aotearoa's first ever New Zealand Arts Month
In September 2019, The Chartwell Trust was one of the inaugural supporters of NZ Arts Month, launched by the New Zealand Arts Foundation as a way to bring arts up on the national agenda and map out Aotearoa's own definition of art and connectedness in our communities.
