A room full to the brim with people that believe in the power of the arts. Nine stories of incredible impact. Chart-topping levels of aroha and joy. And of course, a solid boogie with our arts community – the 2023 Laureate Party was a night like no other.
A huge mihi to everyone that attended to back creativity in Aotearoa, and to celebrate our outstanding 2023 Laureates.
If you haven't yet, learn more about these nine artists here, and please join us in supporting and acknowledging them by sharing their stories far and wide!
It is 100% thanks to the generosity of our sponsors that we are able to put on the celebrations that bring us all closer to the arts. A huge shout out to this year's sponsors!
