Performers at Auckland Arts Festival

Back to the news

Auckland Arts Festival, New Zealand’s largest festival of arts and culture, returns across Auckland from 7 – 24 March 2019.

The programme includes more than 42 theatre, dance, music and visual arts events celebrating people and culture.

The programme includes two events that relate to the Office of Ethnic Communities’ focus on valuing diverse cultures and ethnicities within communities, wider society and the nation, these include:

  • Pantograph Punch Talks: Bad Refugee: a panel of former refugees come together for a candid conversation about how refugee stereotypes have shaped their experiences, and to tell stories we often don’t hear.
  • A Man of Good Hope: a musical theatre show based on a true story about migration. The powerful way the story is told, combined with the uplifting music and performances, will help audiences of all backgrounds connect and understand the journey of many ethnic communities.

We really hope you’re able to check one of these events out. For further details, and the full programme.
