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.

Internet sensation "lowcostcosplay" stopped Auckland traffic with their billboard featuring low budget versions of costume play.

The Thai artists use everyday household items to hilarious effect in the creation of "cosplay" characters that would usually be far more extravagant.
