We are working on an online platform that will make arts and culture easier to find and connect within our district.
This platform will be called Te Wāhi Toi. It will offer a What’s On Guide, Creative Directory, Find A Space Guide, Community Arts News and some exciting personalisation features.
Until Te Wāhi To launches we are offering a range of information through our social channels and newsletter.
