Te Tairāwhiti Arts Festival
Te Tairāwhiti Arts Festival has at its heart the artists and audiences of Te Tairawhiti – exploring, exposing and celebrating the wonderful creativity of this place.
Last year, we kicked off with three weeks of world class performing arts. In 2020, we’re excited about the role the arts, and our festival, will play in reconnecting our community as we emerge from the isolation of lockdown – connecting local artists with audiences, providing platforms for stories that need to be told, creating spaces that uplift our community, and curating moments packed with positivity and joy.
Our priority, this year, is to develop a programme everyone can get involved in, that extends the time you spend with the arts, digs deeper in to our local kōrero, and that celebrates the rich imaginations of our people.
