Kāpiti Arts Trail 2020

A message from Rosie Salas, Arts, Museums & Heritage Advisor at Kāpiti Coast District Council (extracts):

As you will be aware, the COVID-19 situation has evolved rapidly and we will be in lockdown very soon. It has affected all Council staff and operations, and right now our focus is on our general community response and following all Government guidelines.

We have put our normal planning for the Arts Trail on hold for now, and will not be opening applications in March/early April as signalled earlier.

We will keep you updated as best we can through email and on our website about the Arts Trail.

In the meantime, we encourage you to share your art and your stories via social media, virtual shows, and displays in street-facing windows. I am putting together a document with some useful links and helpful hints to send out to you shortly.  I encourage you to support each other at this very testing time.

You may also have seen that Creative New Zealand has announced a support package for artists – see Creative NZ support package – which I encourage you to follow up if your art is an important part of your income.

Stay safe:

The best source of information continues to be official government information sources:
