Te Whare Toi o Heretaunga – Hastings City Art Gallery is a key part of Hastings’ thriving arts and cultural landscape. It’s a home for conversations with our community through contemporary art - conversations which challenge and inspire, educate and inform.
With exhibitions and artists from Aotearoa and beyond, alongside talented locals, our Gallery and its programmes are diverse and inclusive. In the heart of Ngāti Kahungunu whenua, Te Whare Toi o Heretaunga is a space where locals and visitors alike can build memories, communities and a sense of ourselves.
As Ngāti Kahungunu rangatira Piri Sciascia said: He toi whakairo, he mana tangata – where there is artistic excellence, there is human dignity.
