We want Wellington to be the undisputed cultural capital of New Zealand.

Wellington is known as the cultural capital of New Zealand, reflecting 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 secure 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 internationally as a vibrant, edgy capital.
