Auckland Arts Festival - Te Ahurei Toi o Tāmaki

4 Mar - 21 Mar 2021

Aotea Centre, Aotea Square, Auckland Town Hall & Bruce Mason Centre

Taking place each March, Auckland Arts Festival fills Auckland Live venues with an exceptional line-up of theatre, dance, music, talks and cabaret shows.

This year it celebrates our local talent by bringing some of the greatest artists from across Aotearoa New Zealand to enrich the shores of Auckland Tāmaki Makaurau with live performance.

The 2021 programme is inspired by the concept of aroha – with every event in the programme bringing us together through love, compassion, empathy, sympathy, affection, caring, benevolence and kindness.

Aroha ki te tangata / show kindness, compassion, goodwill towards people

Aroha ki te taiao / caring for our natural environment – air, land, water

Aroha ki ngā kōrero / respect for our stories
