Vibrant and rich with story, rugged, soulful and deep, Te Tairāwhiti is home to the creativity of many – past, present and those yet to flourish.
Between October 2 and 11, we will celebrate artists and connections to place while welcoming the world.
Artists will create worlds of wonder, provocation and poignance, and reminded us of the importance of story. They will shine a light into dark places, often providing commentary on difficult and challenging times. They will lead us into spaces for reflection, and create moments of joy.
From Raukōkore to Rangitukia, Manutuke to Muriwai, Tikitiki to Tūranga-nui-ā-Kiwa /Gisborne, our region will come alive with theatre, music, dance, whakairo, taonga, light and sound.
