Pop Culture Convention
Promoting Art and Literature through Pop Culture
Pop Culture Convention is another one of Plunge Enterprises, NZ Ltd initiatives.
PLUNGE! is our way of giving back to the community through building a fun environment for youth to see Art and Literature as a way for future career pathways. We want to build for the future and what better way than helping kids see a future in the arts and literature fields through playing games, being involved in creating art, being around their likeminded friends, peers and family members. As well as by seeing, meeting and being amongst accomplished artists themselves.

PLUNGE! 2022, with the instability brought on by the governments ever changing restrictions surrounding mandates and protocols which has seen folk out of work and some businesses having to lower the business hours and thus their earnings, the Plunge Enterprises CEO decided it would best to reach out for support to a wider audience for funding of the 2022 event of PLUNGE! Pop Culture Convention 2022.
PLUNGE! 2021, for the first time in it's 3 year history was able to be fully funded by the Creative Communities Scheme. Which meant that we were able to run the event without a cost to any community based or, non-profit group that was was invited to participate.
We received, NZ$1300. through the Whangarei District Council who administers and allocates funds through Creative Communities Scheme for the Whangārei District on behalf of Creative New Zealand.
