About the event

Gizzy Local presents…. “A conversation for our Arts Community”

For artists, arts workers and arts consumers in Te Tairāwhiti

What is the state of the arts here in Te Tairāwhiti? Who are our creatives? Who’s in the audience? What challenges are we facing, and how can we work together to boost our local creative economy and maximise the good stuff that comes from creating and consuming art?

The creative industry - and therefore our artists - is heavily reliant on funding. But this isn’t necessarily the right road for everyone, whether you don’t know how to play the funding game or just don’t want to take that route. Likewise our region is relatively small in population and there’s not a heap of money in the mix.  However, what we do have is a plethora of artists, arts workers and arts consumers in Te Tairāwhiti, and between us we have solutions!

Gizzy Local invites the arts community (makers and consumers) to join us in one of three conversations over a three-day period. Whether you consider yourself a creative, artist, musician, craftsperson, or prefer to identify as a lover of the arts, we’d love for you to attend.

Facilitated by independent Producer Jordan Walker, with guest facilitators honing in on creative practices, let’s unpack these solutions together, through kōrero and connection. Gizzy Local will provide the whare, the soup, snacks and beverages.  We look forward to hosting you and breaking down how we can work together to build a thriving and supportive local arts scene in Te Tairāwhiti, irrespective of Government funding models and the current economic climate.

Make sure you tell your creative friends too!
