Kotahi Christmas

Gift a Year of the Arts

We have a hunch that 2024 is going to require some serious hits of joy – and we think we have just the gift!


Give an Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi Kotahi Membership this Christmas and give the gift of backing the arts.

The Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi is a charity – 100% funded through generous giving. Our mission: To make New Zealand a better place by backing the arts. With your support, we:

  • Back our nation's most outstanding artists (heard of the Laureate, Icon or Springboard Awards?)
  • Build capability for all artists through NZ's only crowdfunding platform dedicated to the arts, Boosted
  • Champion creativity by getting arts in the media and on our screens
  • Bring New Zealander's closer to the arts

For a $43 a month – or a $500 annual gift – you can gift an individual (or couple – or treat yourself!) a Kotahi membership for 2024. What does a Kotahi membership include?

  • Two tickets to the Arts Foundation Laureate Party (the arts party of the year every Spring!) at the Aotea Centre, Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland. Tickets are usually $120 each.
  • Exclusive invitations to other events around the country, up-close-and-personal with some of our outstanding artists across the genres
  • The first look at all our major art news and announcements – this is the perfect intro to the arts in Aotearoa.
  • The opportunity to learn new things, see creative perspectives on major issues and challenge yourself in the best possible way.
  • The knowledge that you're supporting artists across Aotearoa to do the best work of their lives!

How it works:

  • Purchase a membership now through the form below.
  • You'll be promoted to fill out the name and email address of the recipient/s of your gift (and their postal address for some welcome gifts if you can remember it!)
  • We'll email you a printable PDF to gift them at Christmas time – and we'll be in touch with them early in the new year to kick off their year of arts immersion.
