Looking for thespians: cultural masterplan consultation

Kids perform at the one and only performance space in Wanaka; the Lake Wanaka Centre.

What does Wanaka need? A proper theatre with a sprung stage for professional dancers? More touring performances from world-class acts? A public art gallery? A local history museum? A marae? A community art studio? A recording studio?

Three Lakes Cultural Trust is developing the district's first independent Cultural Masterplan, a project which QLDC supports and will be aiming to align with the outcomes in the future development of cultural and community facilities. The Trust is keen to hear from all cultural consumers in our community. Whether you are a professional theatre director or a beginner kapa haka singer, or a photographer or a DJ; participants in all cultural activities that form the fabric of our society are invited to attend.

A survey has been underway over previous weeks, and the results from that survey will be the basis of the discussion at the town hall meeting next Wednesday evening, May 29.

The input provided will help develop an arts and culture strategy for the whole district reflective of and responsive to the communities' needs and goals.

If you want to be a part of designing our district’s cultural masterplan, you are welcome to attend: Lake Wanaka Centre, Wednesday May 29, 6.30pm.
