The Taranaki Arts Festival Trust believes we have a responsibility to give as many school children as we can access to performing arts. Exposure to arts and culture has many positive effects on the community’s wellbeing and the future of our next generation.

Over the last 30 years, our Schools Programme has given thousands of school children the opportunity to experience the arts who may not otherwise be able to.

Pay It Forward, Keep Arts Thriving invites you to purchase a ticket that will create an opportunity for a Taranaki school child to experience a live performing art show right here in our community.

Your $5 donation goes a long way to ensure that Arts Thrive Here for the next 30 years.


The risk of exposure to Covid-19 and transmission in New Zealand remains real, so we all must continue to be vigilant.

To ensure the health and wellbeing of all the festival visitors we ask that you download the NZ COVID Tracer app, keep a record of your movements, practise good hygiene and stay home if you feel unwell.
