Support Aotearoa's creative community by joining The Culture Club – and access some sweet perks!


As a Culture Club supporter, you’ll be getting behind events like the Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, the Wellington Jazz Festival, Lexus Song Quest and Te Hui Ahurei Reo Māori. Your support means we can lower ticket prices for everyone so more New Zealanders can be inspired, moved, provoked and challenged by art.

Join the New Zealand Festival's Culture Club from just $5 per month and we’ll say thanks with early access to Festival tickets and specially-commissioned arty content.

Plus you’ll help make the Festival more accessible to more people through our free school and community events.

EARLY ACCESS: The best seats at the best price

You’ll get access to tickets ahead of the crowd for any Tāwhiri-run events like Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, Wellington Jazz Festival, Lexus Song Quest and Te Hui Ahurei Reo Māori.

INSIDE KNOWLEDGE: Know your arts from your elbow

Perfect for the arts addicts or Festival fans. We’ll bring you the juiciest local and international culture news in our digital mag ARTicle, along with special commissions and exclusive work from top New Zealand talent in our quarterly Insider.

THE GOOD FEELS: From donating to a great cause and getting behind something you care about

Your donation is a vital part of our arts ecosystem, allowing us to support artists and break down barriers to attendance so that more, different people can access the the wellbeing benefits of the arts and creativity...

Our new Culture Club platform offers you increased flexibility over your payment schedule (monthly, yearly or quarterly) – so you have the flexibility to choose the best option for you and you can change it at any time!


Don’t forget that Culture Club donations are tax deductible. Look out for your receipts after each donation and if you’d like a hand claiming your rebate, check out Supergenerous, who can help you maximise the impact of your donation.


As a Culture Club supporter, you will get exclusive pre-sale access to tickets for this year’s Wellington Jazz Festival (25-29 October) and the 2024 Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts (23 February – 17 March 2024). In addition, you will receive our fortnightly e-newsletter ARTicle and our quarterly Insider which feature interviews, giveaways and the inside scoop on what's happening in the art world in Aotearoa and beyond.
