Our annual programmes include the Dunedin Fringe Festival (an 11-day open access, multidisciplinary arts festival); Amped Music Project (a music mentorship programme for high school aged youth); and the New Zealand Young Writers Festival (a 4-day festival that celebrates young writers aged 15-35). We also run Te Whare o Rukutia, a performing arts venue that builds capacity for artistic output in the city; manage the Dunedin Community Gallery (on behalf of the Dunedin City Council); and curate the White Box Gallery in Fringe HQ. 

Thank you so much for your support!
