Toi Ora History
Toi Ora began in a small factory space above a spectacles shop in Mount Eden. It was first registered under the Charitable Trusts Act (1957) on July 13, 1995. As Toi Ora evolved, a larger space was needed, leading to its move to another space above a mechanic’s workshop in Arch Hill. Finally, in August 2009, Toi Ora moved to its current location at 6 Putiki Street, Grey Lynn, where a long-held dream of having its own gallery became a reality. As the Trust began to make a difference and have a positive impact within the wider community, more funding was granted. With more space and money for resources, Toi Ora has been able to provide an increasingly diverse programme of classes covering the arts spectrum, and over the years, new and exciting courses continue to be introduced.
Toi Ora’s programme echoes the “five ways to well-being" model of mental health: connect, take notice, keep learning, be active, give.
To enrich lives through creativity, connection and community
Inclusivity, Respect, Partnership, Integrity, Advocacy and Purposefulness. Toi Ora recognises the importance of Te Tiriti o Waitangi, with due regards for its articles and principals.
Toi Ora’s purpose is to provide a participatory community to enable our beneficiaries to participate in the creative arts so that they can develop their strengths and potential in the arts in a safe, non-institutional and non-threatening environment and to make a positive contribution to the community. We provide social, intellectual, artistic and creative pursuits that enrich people's lives, and contribute to the de-stigmatisation of mental health to create positive social change.
