Helping keep the arts alive in Wairarapa.
Heart of Arts is a busy community art space based in the heart of Carterton, hence the name. It survives through funding from grants, the local councils and donations from the public. It is part of the Toi Wairarapa Trust.
The trust has grown since taking over the Wags to Whiskers premises on the High Street and has provided a valuable platform for both experienced and amateur artists, hosting many local artists and musicians.
Corrinne Oliver is a key player in the success of Heart of Arts and through her boundless energy and positivity has built a team of 20 equally committed volunteers. Heart of Arts now hosts many community groups including R2R, Toastmasters, fitness classes, music rehearsals and more.
Heart of Arts has been singled out by Destination Wairarapa as a key reason people stop in Carterton where they spend money on food, books, coffee and, of course, art work.
Our trustees give their time and expertise freely to provide governance to Toi Wairarapa and have some big plans, like Art Start, which will address the problem with empty shops and bring exciting new up and coming artists to the town.
