WCC: Councils support state of the arts in the region

The Wellington Regional Amenities Fund (WRAF) has allocated over $1 million to seven organisations – boosting the region’s reputation as the arts and cultural centre of New Zealand.

WRAF was established in 2012 to demonstrate the region’s commitment to arts and cultural activity, ensuring a robust and thriving network of events and attractions for all to enjoy.

2017 recipients include the award winning Cuba Dupa, Kia Mau, and LUX Light festivals, which are popular fixtures on the regions’ events calendar, and contribute to the local economy says Upper Hutt City Council Mayor and WRAF Chair, Wayne Guppy.
