Who we are
Auckland Live is a world-class leader in live arts and entertainment, and an active contributor to the vibrancy and creativity of Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland.
We present live arts performances and events at a number of prominent venues across Auckland; support the arts and creative sector; and provide opportunities for people of all ages to engage with the arts.
We champion Auckland internationally to secure big-name shows and concerts for our audiences. In addition we collaborate with national and international arts companies and festivals to present the best variety of performances, and introduce young people to the excitement of the stage.
Our iconic venues and public spaces - which include the Aotea Centre, Aotea Square, Auckland Town Hall, The Civic, Bruce Mason Centre and Queens Wharf - are our stages for presenting a programme of live arts and entertainment for the enjoyment and inspiration of everyone in our city.
Through partnerships and collaborations, Auckland Live also energises the Aotea Arts Quarter with events and activities – many of them free or low cost - year ‘round.
