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.

A photographic exhibition about Muslim New Zealanders is on display in Malaysia, where their stories are playing a part in conversations about religious diversity. 

The Crescent Moon: The Asian Face of Islam in New Zealand is a book and exhibition by Adrienne Jansen and photographer Ans Westra that celebrates the positive differences and uniqueness of our resident Muslim population.
