The creative arts sector in Southland is vibrant, dynamic and offers locals, and visitors to the region, a diverse range of experiences and events.

Venture Southland provides support to the arts community by advocating on their behalf, providing advice and offering practical tools such as project and strategic planning, business set-up support, event management guidelines and funding information.

Venture Southland also helps with the marketing and publicity of the arts sector by promoting upcoming events on their events website and by providing a list of media contacts for promoting organisations to utilise.

A newsletter about upcoming events including Arts in Southland is also generated weekly and sent out to our subscribed database. By signing up to the newsletter you will get to hear all the news, invitations to workshops or reminders about arts events and exhibition openings. If we hear about it, you will too!
