About Us

Te Taumata Toi-a-Iwi is Auckland’s arts regional trust. We are a centre for creative knowledge and practice, we co-design and facilitate sector conversations and connections, and we advocate for the policies, practices and infrastructure the arts, culture and creative sector needs to make Tāmaki Makaurau a city alive with creativity.

Te Taumata Toi-a-Iwi supports the arts, culture and creative sector of Auckland. This includes working with the sector locally and nationally to advocate for systemic and institutional change to arts funding, policies and practices. Through advocacy, capability development, and knowledge sharing, we aim to empower the sector and support equity, and inclusion.
