The New Arts Centre

Creative Napier has been permitted to use the the Old Borough Council Building as the new community arts centre.

Our fundraising has commenced to raise $100,000 towards the cost of the refurbishment.

Summer Series

Every year we produce a series of free concerts located at key sites around Napier. Each concert features different genres of music to cater for all tastes and ages.

The Elvis Tribute concert with bonus Classic Cars was a huge success!

Tree Cosies

Subversive yarn bombing in the form of Tree Cosies has found its way into Emerson Street during the Spring months.

Childrens Arts Expo

The expo was enjoyed by over 1000 children last year who took part in a wide variety of creative arts experiences.
