Appendix 1: Alignment with other parts of government

Cultural activity undertaken by the government-funded parts of the cultural sector makes strong contributions towards economic and social life in New Zealand. Many initiatives undertaken by the Ministry at a central government level involve partnerships with other agencies, with the Ministry acting in either a lead or subsidiary role. This ensures that our work complements that of other departments in achieving the Government’s objectives.

The table below outlines some of the key institutional relationships that the Ministry and funded agencies have with other parts of central government. The table is organised according to the cultural sector outcome to which the activity in question is primarily directed. Some departments are listed under more than one outcome.
