About us


Nau mai, haere mai ki Te Ahurei Toi o Tamaki Makaurau

Auckland Arts Festival is the home for ambitious and compelling ideas that celebrate humanity and uplift the spirit.

We champion the storyteller, the adventurer, the provocateur and the creator.

Our bedrock is a partnership with Tangata Whenua, the first people, the first language and the first story of Aotearoa.

The festival celebrates contemporary, cosmopolitan Auckland and its many communities.

We invite everyone to Auckland Arts Festival to be entertained, inspired, provoked and included.

On 31 October 2017, the Auckland Arts Festival 2018 programme will be launched so, watch this space!
