Covid-19 and Arts and Culture

We know these are testing times for us all, and for Aotearoa's arts and culture sector. To that end, while this situation continues to unfold, Council is focused on resilience and maintaining our arts and cultural sector infrastructure. Council's City Arts and Events team are working from home, but are contactable via arts@wcc.govt.nz for any questions.

For more information about what's on during lock-down, what has been postponed and what we're looking forward to please sign up to receive the City Arts Panui and follow our social media channels – Wellington City Council's and Toi Pōneke's Facebook pages and the wgtn_city_art_collection and public_art_wellington Instagram pages.

Remember to look out for yourself and others, be kind to one another, stay home and stay connected with friends and loved ones. Thank you for your patience during this time.
