Dress to celebrate. Dress to dance.
Dress up for the pink carpet. Dress up for our Laureates!

In partnership with One NZ, Sunday Star Times and Auckland Live we invite you to join us at the arts party of the year!

Be the first in the country to meet and celebrate our 2023 Arts Foundation Te Tumu Toi Laureates: the next wave of outstanding artists shaping Aotearoa.

Hang with New Zealand’s greatest artists, get to know the nine 2023 Arts Foundation Laureate recipients and party into the night with kai and libations from the best in New Zealand hospitality.

Tickets include food, drinks, music – and of course, front row seats for the 2023 Laureate reveal.

This year, our nine Laureate recipients will each receive a $30,000 gift in recognition of their monumental impact and contribution to the arts (and most importantly: as a nudge to keep going!). These gifts are made possible thanks to the radical generosity of some incredible New Zealanders: Sir Roger Hall, The Burr/ Tatham Trust, Theresa Gattung, My ART, Jillian Friedlander, Hall Cannon, Dame Gaylene Preston and Sir Roy McKenzie, Vista Foundation, NZ Film Commission and NZ International Film Festival, Marti and Gerrard Friedlander, and Mallinson Rendel.
