Would you like to help to support Art in the Waimarino?
We are calling for existing and new sponsors to assist us in taking regional Arts and Community Culture development and promotion to the next level. We have new and proposed exciting categories and just need you to get behind us to regenerate creative economies in New Zealand. In 2020, we have a contingency Coronavirus plan—if we can't hold the events locally that we describe, we'll do it all online.
We remain founded and governed by the same Trust as previous event years. But pandemic lockdown and recent opportunities to grow our local commerce with recognized Transformation, Development and Fundraising experts—we're in the process of setting up this new-look professional and secure website.
Partner with us and we'll share our new abundance in community.
