Please note that programming for the 2022 Aotearoa New Zealand Festival
is now complete.


Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts is a curated Festival and artists are programmed by invitation. We are always interested in hearing from artists and organisations, having conversations and exploring how your work aligns with our Festival. Aotearoa New Zealand work is selected and commissioned by the Festival’s Creative Director, Marnie Karmelita and Director Ngā Toi Māori, Mere Boynton.
