Our city. Our gallery. Contemporary art. Stories to inspire.

Hastings City Art Gallery provides arts experiences to the regional community; responds to the ever-developing local, national and global arts scenes; collaborates with other artistic institutions; provides opportunities through outreach and online programmes; and seeks a firmer partnership with mana whenua. Vital to the life of the gallery is its bi-cultural touchstone, Ararau. The Maori dimension of the strategy acts as the Gallery’s guiding force:

Manakitanga Ahuatanga Kotahitanga Tikanga

To Explore, Identify and Develop Unique Arts Propositions.

Mana Kaitiakitanga

To Promote and Grow Arts Opportunity to Support the Region’s Arts Sector and the Gallery’s Stakeholders.

Ahuatanga Mana

To Define the Character of the Gallery, Securing a Unique Position and Establishing Visibility in a National Context.

Mana Tupuna, Mana Atua, Mana Whenua

To Produce Enduring Benefits – Economic, Social and Cultural.
