The Arts

We dive deep into the richness of how the arts bring so much to our lives. Both for pleasure and education. Hawke’s Bay’s cultural life thrives with music, dance, theatre, arts, museums and libraries. We grow great writers, painters, photographers, musicians and artists from all walks of life. We make it our mission to discover how they breathe life and hope into our region.
