Whau the People Caritable Trust exists to support creative neighbourhoods within the Whau area. We do this by running a variety of art projects, including the annual Whau Arts Festival. If you’re looking for a good home for any donation you’d like to make, or sponsorship fund, of course we’d like to talk with you.
You can also donate directly to us through our bank account:
Whau the People
All donations over $5.00 are tax deductable; if you’d like a receipt, please message us with your details.
Building on the success of a range of recent art projects in the area, this will be a space that can host exhibitions, performances, workshops, talks, screenings, meetings, parties, a children’s gallery, and everything else in between. We’re working hard to make as many of these as possible free for people to take part in.
We’ve been given an amazing (we know that’s an overused word, but really it is) opportunity to take on the lease on a key building in the Avondale main street. Thanks to the support of a local businessman, we’ve been given a greatly reduced rent which means this is possible.
We all live around the area, and like it here, and think that a space like this will be a real asset to the area. We’re keen to have a space where flash award-winning artists feel just as home as the seven year old that’s never seen a real painting before, and our previous projects have all been a part of trying to embed interesting artistic projects within the wider community.
Taking a lease on a space is a natural extension of our previous projects; having a “home” means that we can take on even more projects and provide more opportunities for the local community to do cool things.
