Why support us? 

The Arts Centre Te Matatiki Toi Ora is the largest collection of Category 1 heritage buildings listed on The New Zealand Heritage List Rārangi Kōrero. These buildings are a national taonga (treasure) and have been part of a huge restoration and strengthening project since the devastating Canterbury earthquakes of 2010-11.

As well as the ongoing restoration, we are in parallel raising operational funding to keep the doors open, the lights on and the music playing. 

Every donation – large or small – makes a valuable difference to what can be achieved. You will receive a tax receipt for any donation over $5. For every dollar you donate, you can receive 33% back as a tax credit.

Join us in providing a stunning home for arts, culture and heritage for generations to come.

Thank you for supporting Te Matatiki Toi Ora The Arts Centre.
