With its magnificent landscape, expansive horizon, unspoilt environment and deep, underlying sense of spirituality, Muriwai Beach, 35 minutes west of Auckland, has long been an inspirational home to New Zealand artists. Muriwai Arts is dedicated to raising the profile of this beautiful and unique west coast region, specifically in terms of the abundance of artistic talent that is found here.

Our Vision – to ‘celebrate our creative community’.

Our Approach – to provide ongoing activities, events, and forums designed to connect the local community, and the wider population, with the artists of Muriwai.

Our Long Term Goal – to establish a community facility at Muriwai. This space could be used for art exhibitions, art studios, an artist’s retreat, a place where art classes and lectures can be held, or as a venue for school holiday programmes.

Muriwai Arts Incorporated CC45504 is a registered charity.

Muriwai Arts gratefully acknowledges the support of the Rodney District Council (ARST Fund). This generous funding has enabled us to make the 2009, 2010 and 2013 Muriwai Arts Trails a reality.
