Strengthening cultural excellence
innovation and tenacity.
Ara Toi aims to position Ōtepoti Dunedin as one of the world’s great small cities for arts and culture. The team works with individuals and groups internal and external to the Dunedin City Council to ensure that projects involving arts and culture are supported and that the city's cultural sector can thrive.
The Ara Toi Group comprises a small strategy team and the five Dunedin arts and cultural institutions: Dunedin Public Art Gallery, Dunedin Public Libraries, Lan Yuan Chinese Garden, Olveston Historic Home, Toitū Otago Settlers’ Museum. We work closely with Dunedin's other cultural institutions, including the UNESCO City of Literature Director, with whom we share a space.
