Creating
collective
positive impact

Advocacy is how we champion the arts, culture and creativity, as well as their impact, throughout our society.

We stand up
for the arts

This mahi is informed by understanding the depth and breadth of local creative activity, being well-connected to new research and data around the benefits of arts for wellbeing and community connection, and having a strategic vision for the future of the Waikato creative ecosystem and how it can continue to grow as it has in the past 10 years.

We know there is strength in numbers, and we have a range of active and passionate community advocates working in our region. In order to support your own advocacy, as well as provide access to information and a shared advocacy language so that we can collectively have a positive impact, we have made our mahi easy to find a reference. The links below are various submissions, strategies and documents that Creative Waikato has presented at all levels of our societal systems.
