All in for Arts: He waka toi e eke noa nei tātou 2022

The Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi and Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa – with the support of Chartwell Trust and the Lion Foundation – are heading on a road trip, shining a spotlight on creativity in a town near you.

After pressing pause on our regional road trip in September, we're coming to a town near you in March 2022! We know the arts are making an important contribution to everyday life in communities across the motu – and we invite you to join us as we bring together likely (and unlikely!) arts lovers to tell us how the arts make a difference to their lives. We want to hear what the arts mean to you and your community – and we’re inviting well-known locals to share their stories with us. Join us for a cup of coffee and a bite to eat, and be a part of the kōrero about why the arts aren’t just a nice to have.

We’ll be joined by an Arts Foundation Laureate who will share the impact creativity has had on their lives (and tell us what it’s like being a full-time artist!). Plus we’ll bring an update on what’s happening for the arts in Aotearoa.

While our hope is that we can connect kanohi ki te kanohi (in person), safety will be our number one priority. We’ll closely monitor traffic light settings, vaccination levels, and community interest in hosting events in person. We have a plan in place to move to a digital event if necessary, on a region-by-region basis. We’ll make our decision on whether we gather in person or digitally two weeks out from the events, and clearly communicate any changes.

Vaccine Passes will be required for entry to each event.

It’s free so all you need to do is register! Spaces are limited, so hop to it. Find an event near you below.
