Showcase Day

It is nearly time to launch the Arts Out East Festival 2018 and to celebrate we have put together a special all ages showcase at UXBRIDGE Arts & Culture to highlight the culture and talent available in East Auckland.

Come join us for a jam-packed day of entertainment beginning at 10 am with a Mihi Whakatau. The day will continue with drop in workshops – where you can join in on a contemporary jewellery class with local artist Sarah Walker-Holt, or try your hand at traditional Chinese calligraphy and much more.

For those of you wanting to catch dance troupes take the stage, we have a range of performers available to entertain you and perhaps even teach you a move or two.

Alae will be taking the stage in the theatre at 12:30pm

We will also have some pop-up art events including the Fortune Cookie Cart and a site specific installation from Veronica Herber.

Coffee will be available on the day from the Uxbridge Café and for food, you can take your pick of food trucks serving hand-rolled sushi from Temaki Truck NZ or grab a refreshing soda and scoop of ice-cream from The Marilyn all while you relax to the sweet sounds of local performers.

There’s something for the whole family with more being added daily.
