Our Unusual Art Talk at the end of August was an inspiring and uplifting afternoon connecting art, music and dance. Thanks to all who participated.

Unfortunately the Nairobi Trio evening of jazz has been postponed due to unforeseen circumstances. We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Thank you for your understanding.

What a beautiful evening of violin and piano this was! We look forward to inviting Gemma and Charlotte back soon.

Thanks to all who joined us for our June events - a studio visit to Akepiro Studios in Kingsland, followed by our AGM on Friday 16 June.


Thank you to all who came to this wonderful evening of music! Our gala concert evening featured piano, strings, voice - classical to contemporary, opera to original song. Musical delights included pianist Katherine Austin and cellist James Tennant of NZ Chamber Soloists, the APO's James Jin (violin) and Xing Wang (piano), pianist Madeleine Xiao, cellist Kimberley Yuan, singer-songwriter Montgomery and international opera singer Edward Laurenson (star of the recent production of Chess the Musical at the Dame Kiri Te Kawana Theatre in Auckland). The programme ranged from Mozart to Chopin to Schoenberg, and much much more. This was truly a night to treasure!

Our new event - MUSIC IN EDEN - every Friday lunchtime.

Our scheduled Walters Prize tour at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki was unable to go ahead in the Level 4 lockdown but Sue Gardiner kindly stepped in to offer an online Zoom talk instead. Since then we have held another five Zoom sessions on a range of topics from Collections, Connections, Creations and Mark Making to an online Quiz and a Musical Mystery Tour. Thanks to our new Zoom community for joining us each week and for your amazingly positive feedback.
Recently we held a group artist talk and afternoon tea at Karekare House. With thanks to our partners, the Karekare House Trust.

Here's a little flashback to the wonderfully memorable Eden Arts literary dinner held at the end of 2019 at the exclusive Mantells in Mt Eden Village. This night marked the re-naming of our traditional literary dinner in memory of the late and great Michael Gifkins, literary agent, and also launched a new Eden Arts literary residency at Karekare House made possible by the bequest generously donated to the Eden Arts Trust by the late Eliszabeth Ebbett.
