Public Diplomacy Support for Events:

Public Diplomacy within the Australian High Commission can support New Zealand organisations with costs incurred by their collaborations with Australia.

Funding can only be used for an Australian individual or group to speak, perform, or attend a function in support of the following Australian High Commission objectives:

  • Showcase Australia as a valuable and active bilateral partner for New Zealand across the five areas of the Roadmap, focusing in 2023-24 on Pacific, defence/security and climate.
  • Demonstrate Australia’s contribution to Pacific and Indo-Pacific regions that are peaceful, stable, prosperous and resilient.
  • Promote bilateral partnerships, understanding and exchange, including between our First Nations People.

You must provide a Public Diplomacy Application form, budget of costs and explanation on how your event will align with an objective above.

Each application is considered carefully, and successful applicants will need to host their event before 31st July 2024.

Funding applications will be open from 25th August – 20th October 2023. Applications received outside of this timeframe may be considered, where funding is available.

TO APPLY: please complete the Public Diplomacy Application form and send it to [email protected].
