'Opportunity Arts' advocates, empowers and provides practical support for artists of diverse backgrounds who face barriers to participation in the arts; to develop individual, sustainable arts practices.

We work with talented and dedicated, emerging artists, who for various reasons (for example, disability) require additional support to access opportunities that can increase their audience, profile, income, sense of pride and purpose.

We are passionate that with this mahi we can encourage social change and diversify the New Zealand contemporary art scene. Giving a voice and platform to those who are often unheard and unseen within this community and wider society.

This exhibition is an inclusive artshow from over 10 Wellington based artists that we're big fans of!
