We're very excited…and we need your help. Would you like to play
an integral part in making the Waitaki Arts Festival a success for
the region and it's people?
This is an opportunity to be part of this new arts festival.
While we have received tremendous support from funders and
sponsors, we still require a boost to ensure the festival is
presented to the highest standard and to enhance our free entry
community events - please, join us with this campaign.
The festival will be held over two weeks and three weekends, in a
variety of locations - Alps2Ocean Cycle Trail, Friendly Bay,
Forrester Art Gallery, Grainstore Gallery, Loan & Merc, Oamaru
Opera House, Oamaru Public Gardens, Riverstone Kitchen, Scotts
Brewing Co, Takaroa Park, Waitaki Community Gardens, Whitestone
City & the NZ Whiskey Barrel Room AND a big red double decker
This festival is bringing our community together in a creative,
fun and family friendly way and our free of charge events include
the Oamaru Stone Sculpture Symposium, Through the Lonesome Dark and
Art on Bikes. The ticketed events have been kept at an affordable
price with many being featured in the beautiful Oamaru stone
historic buildings. The content is international, local and
exceptional NZ productions featuring theatre, dance, film, music,
comedy, literature and visual art

Please donate - ALL donations - large or small - are hugely
appreciated. Our challenge - ticket sales for events in unique
spaces are limited (showcasing the extraordinary venues that we
have in our region), we have kept ticket prices affordable, we have
free of charge events. Running this campaign will assist us meeting
our budget…we just need that little bit extra and you can help us
by donating to this Boosted campaign.
