Discover the Arts
Your enjoyment of live performance is central to THE EDGE’s Arts Programmes, aimed at accessibility and involvement in the performing arts for all age groups and walks of life.
The comprehensive range of programmes we offer underpins our long term priority to engage you in national and international arts and cultural events and to support your endeavours as an emerging or established artist or performing arts company.
In this section of our website, we provide the information you need to become involved in the performing arts:
• Discover the arts with the innovative Learning, Participation and Access programmes. THE EDGE continue to create opportunities for students, teachers, children, families and the community to access new New Zealand work in performing arts as well as experience large scale performances and theatre from our national and regional companies.
• Our Contemporary Programme maximises opportunities for the development of performing artists and their work.
• We host the subscription performances of some of New Zealand’s major performing arts companies in addition to hosting Annual Festivals and Visiting Shows, which add to the vibrant and varied arts experience we offer.
• Get behind the scenes with The Reading Room; the latest news, stories, competitions and more.
