Whau Arts Festival 2019

15 Jun 2019 to 7 Jul 2019
Various times and dates over the 4 weeks
Winter is here… and so is the Whau Arts Festival 2019!
Event type: 
Whau, Avondale and surrounds


This year we’re changing things up (I know, we say that every year); different locations, new artists (and some old pals), and this year we are running our events, workshops, happenings and exhibitions over a mammoth 4 weeks!  Hey, why not!

Some things haven’t changed though: we’re still excited about presenting a wide range of unexpected, experimental artistic collaborations from a whole range of pretty choice people. Plus, there’s a house warming at All Goods – Whau The People’s new art space – right in the middle of it all. 

So, the guts of it are: From the 15 June through to the 7 July, we are embracing the cold, wet-weather season with something for everyone over the month-long winter arts festival. Each week will feature events including a film screening, performance, theatre, a house warming and an interactive snow dome.  During the week, there are free whānau-friendly public workshops where you can get stuck into making and exhibitions will be running throughout Avondale. Inside and out and there will be surprise happenings in unexpected places at unexpected times!



See you there! And there….and there, and THERE!
