Our Festival Whānau

Delivering a world-leading festival that connects and celebrates Te Tairāwhiti just simply could not happen without our family of partners, funders, patrons and everyday people who support our kaupapa.

Their generous (and staunch) support allows us to elevate local talent and taonga, create spaces that uplift our community, curate moments packed with joy – and make them accessible to as many people as humanly possible!   

We’d like to give a shout out to our supporters standing beside us to bring this year’s festival programme to our unique place.  

Thank you for being champions of Te Tairāwhiti arts and culture – Mā whero, mā pango ka oti ai te mahi.
