Murray Reade’s Message to Creative Northland


The creative sector is vitally important to the positivity, health and wellbeing of Tai Tokerau – when our creativity thrives so does our culture. 

We appreciate all the great work that Creative Northland has done within our community and will continue to do. Our message to creative entrepreneurs during these unprecedented times is that you are not alone, and Northland Inc is here to support you in any way it can.

If you need help and support, there are a number of ways to access this via our Northland Inc channels. For example, you can ring the Northland Inc Business Support Helpline on 0800 525 001 and have a friendly chat with one of our growth advisors, who will provide information and direction to the appropriate channels of support. You can also contact us via our website at for assistance and information about available resources and support packages. Feel free to contact us even if you are uncertain whether government subsidies and support apply in your specific case – we are here to clarify and advise each unique business and creative enterprise. Further resources that might be of help to you are also listed below.

We greatly admire the creative brilliance you bring to our region, so please keep up the positive work, and remember that we are always here to support you.
