Arts and Culture - Ngā toi me te ahurea
We want Wellington to remain as the cultural capital of New Zealand.
Wellington is known as the cultural capital of New Zealand, which reflects the local presence of national arts organisations and vibrant arts and events. It is a city of unique cultural experiences for residents and visitors alike. To retain our title we need to build on our strengths and continue to improve our offering.
We’re investing in arts and culture to maintain our position both nationally and internationally as a vibrant, edgy capital.
Find out what key projects we are investing in for 2019/20:
