A shared performing arts centre is a symbol of how people in the city can work together to achieve things that are too difficult to achieve by any one person or group.

Aotea College is looking to create a coalition of the willing to build an Aotea Performing Arts Centre. Both the college and the wider community have strong traditions in the Performing Arts and have signalled the need for a medium sized facility in the city for a number of years.

A collaboration of like minded groups and individuals from the community taking advantage of the major Aotea College redevelopment, will see a 500 seat facility serving both the college and community until such time as a permanent Performing Arts centre is built in Porirua city.

A performing arts centre will enable many community arts groups to rehearse and perform in their own city. The vibrant arts community currently must travel beyond city limits to access facilities fit for purpose.

The project is part of a major redevelopment of Aotea College. Plans for a 500 seat Performing Arts centre have been drawn and the largest proportion of funding is secure, for construction to begin later in 2017.
