Strong, resilient and inclusive communities where local identity, diversity and creativity are nurtured.’

Whau Arts Festival 2023

Enlivening Avondale’s township with a partial road closure, the Whau Arts Festival 2023 will be packed with local creative talent spilling out onto the streets! Discover on-stage and roaming performances with a uniquely Whau flow, artistic activities for young minds, and fantastic local kai. Full programme coming soon…


OFF TRACK is a new public art destination situated between New Lynn and Avondale along the new NL2A pathway. Just as the name intends, OFF TRACK is underpinned by a kaupapa of serious play, off the beaten path. 

Te Whau Pathway project

Te Whau Pathway will be the silver lining of the Whau river and the meeting of both Waitematā and Manukau Harbours. Forged across a time and place of significant cultural histories, this pathway invites people to rediscover themselves in the whenua and to honour the natural beauty of the awa. We are excited to partner with TWPP as the Community Art project leads.

Whau Community Arts brokering

Whau Community Arts Brokering is a community service supported by the Whau Local Board. Tapping into the existing creative community in the Whau area, the arts brokers support the presentation of a range of temporary arts activities and activation’s in our urban environment. The arts brokers for the Whau are Janet Lilo and Jody Yawa McMillan.

ALL GOODS | a space for the arts

ALL GOODS is a community art space that is flexible and accessible, with a focus on providing an inclusive homebase for people in the Whau to participate in the arts. It is a space to strengthen connections, develop ideas and share creative mahi. We welcome artists and people of all abilities and interests to run projects, hold workshops, kōrero, create and experience art.
