About Us

Westland Arts Inc ( WAI) is an Incorporated Society set up in 2004 and run by volunteer art advocates, artists and art lovers. Its main objective is developing and co-ordinating initiatives that foster arts appreciation and excellence.


Hokitika Museum under the auspices of Destination Westland has undertaken to manage this project with WAI to support a vital sector of the economic, cultural and social makeup of Westland.


Partnering with Poutini Ngai Tahu and The West Coast Society of Arts has enabled the project to become a regional initiative designed to benefit all artists on or from the West Coast.
