All in for Arts He waka toi e eke noa nei tātou – Whakatū Nelson

This spring, The Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi is hitting the road with Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa, Chartwell Trust, The Lion Foundation, Coffee Supreme and Noble & Savage, visiting 10 centres on the Great New Zealand Arts Journey.

The arts and creativity are offering hope during these times, and right now are making an impact in our homes, schools, towns and cities. That’s why we’re heading to all four corners of Aotearoa listening, gathering and sharing stories of how creativity is making a difference to communities across the country.

We invite you to attend a free breakfast and to hear stories about the impact the arts are having on everyday life in Whakatū Nelson and illuminate the value of the arts to Aotearoa New Zealand.

Speaker line-up includes:

  • Tanya Nock and Poorna Daundesekera, cultural conversations
  • Nerys Ngaruhe, recipient of the 2018 Te Waka Toi Award for emerging Māori artist
  • Warwick Freeman, jeweller and 2002 Arts Foundation Laureate
  • Zoe Palmer, Teen mental health campaigner
  • Rachel Reese, Mayor of Nelson
  • Tracey Neal, Radio New Zealand reporter
  • Craig Potton, Chair of the Suter Art Gallery
