Where we
make the biggest

Creating opportunity and connecting the sector through projects built for long-lasting impact and positive change.

Creativity Every Day

This innovative programme has been designed to bring creativity into your daily routine whether you are at work or at home.

Featuring artists and talent from around the Waikato region, Creativity Every Day will take you on a journey where you can enjoy our short creative activities, learn from an artist and start building your own creative habits. Using materials readily available in an office setting, you will be able to creatively utilise what is around you on a daily basis.

Supported by research and a policy for workplace creativity, this can also be implemented throughout businesses to further strengthen collaboration, team morale and new ways of thinking.
