Waikato Creative Infrastructure Plan

The Waikato Creative Infrastructure Plan has been developed in recognition of the essential role that the creative arts play in our communities. The creative arts bring people together, build links between communities, and encourage pride and a sense of belonging. A creative economy is also vital for its role in social and economic health and regeneration, plus the health of the arts sector is a critical indicator of overall community wellbeing.

This is the first time the Waikato has reviewed its creative assets in this way and asked the question: “What national, regional and sub-regional infrastructure is required to support our communities for the next 30 years?”. The report reveals that a coordinated response is required not only to grow our communities, but to protect against the loss of essential creative activity in the near future.
