Creative Northland has an ongoing commitment to making sure that the arts sector in Northland is dynamic, thriving, influential and productive.

The Northland Art Guide

The Northland Art Guide is a publication created by Creative Northland. The purpose is to showcase the wonderful galleries and creative experiences Northland has to offer. The guide is designed to not only highlight the larger, more familiar art galleries and events of our region, but also our out-of-the-way galleries and studio spaces in our rural creative communities throughout Northland. From the Kaipara District through to the Whangarei and Far North districts, our artistic and creative culture is truly world class.

In the past, the Northland Art Guide has been a three-year publication. We have now revised this and decided to release a guide annually to reflect the rapidly growing and changing sector.

If you would like to grab yourself a copy of the 2017-2018 Northland Art Guide you can pop into local tourist stop offs from Auckland Airport up. Locations include art galleries, i-SITES, museums, venues, accommodation providers and of course our office. Alternatively, you can download the digital version right here.

For a full list of current galleries, museums, venues and creative arts events in Northland please refer to our directory and event calendar

We hope you enjoy the guide and make time to explore our beautiful region. Whether you are from out of town or live locally, there are always treasures to find. So get out there and start your journey of discovery!

2018/2019 Northland Art Guide – on hold

To be considered for this year’s publication you need to be an artist, a gallery owner, a local museum, a festival, or a venue (only the venue name and website will be included in the Art Guide) in the Northland region. See below for requirements of each category:

Festivals must have a creative/art focus and be occurring between December 2018 and November 2019. Venues must regularly host events from the Creative Sector in Northland.

If you participated in the last Northland Art Guide please still fill out this form so we have your most up to date details.

Creative Northland will select the organisations from the EOI to go into the Art Guide. By completing this form you are not guaranteed a place. We will do our best to include all organisations in Northland who meet the requirements as stated above.
