Arts and Community

Each year, our arts programme helps bring tens of thousands of New Zealanders in contact with the cultural traditions of Asia. We help organise and fund Asia-related events such as the Chinese Lantern Festival, Diwali and the Southeast Asian Night Market and support artists’ residencies and professional development in Asia.

Composer and ethnomusicologist Jack Body has spent a lifetime bringing cultures together through music.  

That desire to broker what he calls “cross-cultural creativity” has brought him in frequent contact with the Asia New Zealand Foundation.
