The Culture Club
We believe art makes life better
The Culture Club is our regular giving programme
As a Culture Club supporter, you’ll be getting behind events like the Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, the Wellington Jazz Festival and Lexus Song Quest. Your support means we can lower ticket prices for everyone so more New Zealanders can be inspired, moved, provoked and challenged by art. We think it’s worth $5/month – we know you do too.
The Culture Club perks
The best seats at the best price
You’ll get access to tickets ahead of the crowd for any Tāwhiri-run events like the Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, Wellington Jazz Festival and Lexus Song Quest.
