Aho Tini 2030: Arts, Culture and Creativity Strategy

This strategy combines the review of the 2011 Arts & Culture Strategy, together with the original Aho Tini principles (2018), to give new direction for cultural wellbeing for the city.

This creative and collaborative approach will lead us through the next 10 years of innovation in Wellington. Drawing on the city’s strengths and traditions of creativity, the development of this strategy provides an opportunity to reflect on what the generations before us have laid down and plan how we want to work together for the future.
